Student Life
Life at Linsly
There are more than 400 students enrolled at The Linsly School during the academic year. Students in grades 5 through 8 are considered members of Linsly's Middle School. The Upper School is comprised of students in grades 9 - 12.

The conduct of daily life at Linsly is based on principles of mutual respect and cooperation. Students are encouraged to accept responsibility, express themselves openly and develop a strong sense of self-awareness and self-confidence. Boys and girls adhere to a dress code designed to distinguish themselves by their accomplishments rather than by their appearance.

  • The Advisory Program

    The School's Advisory Program provides guidance from the faculty members in both academic and personal matters.  The advisor becomes the student's close personal contact with the school, and advisors are available to offer assistance in all areas of a student's life.
  • Extracurricular Activities

    Linsly provides a wide range of extracurricular options considered essential to the overall educational process. The Student Life program gives each boy and girl the opportunity to express his or her individuality through participation in activities that meet a variety of needs and interests.
  • Athletics

    At Linsly, athletics are an important part of a well-rounded education, in part because they contribute to physical well-being, but even more so for what they can teach. Through athletics, students learn that hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship, and teamwork count at least as much as winning.
  • The Prefect System

    The prefect system is Linsly's form of student government. This group of young men and women is active in every phase of life at Linsly.  The prefects serve as an extension of the faculty and administration.
