Student Life


At Purnell, involvement comes easily.

Here, in an active, opportunity-filled community, you’ll be encouraged to participate and try new things, and the choices are seemingly endless.

Students find a calendar filled with campus activities, student clubs, athletics, residential life, and more. On weekends, our students are just as busy with day and weekend trips, dances at boys' schools, and on-campus activities such as game nights and movie showings. In addition to the offered activities, students have the opportunity to be involved in a plethora of leadership roles that are available to all grades.
