People often remark about the sharply unique feel of The Hun School culture. This is a special place. And the people who live here are the life of that legacy. As a boarding student at The Hun School, you join a community of students and teachers who are focused on living our shared values: the School’s core principles of trust, respect, integrity, kindness, commitment, and academic excellence. Resident faculty and student leaders foster a sense of structure, community, and common purpose. The entire community comes together for indoor soccer, international student dinners, and open mic nights. Resident faculty take the time to get to know you, they invite you into their families and lives. They serve as tutors, mentors, coaches, and dorm parents.
Patrick Quirk ’02 grew up in Hun School dormitories. As the son of Director of Athletics Bill Quirk and Assistant Director of Athletics Kathy Quirk, some of his earliest childhood memories include boarding students crowded around the dining room table in their faculty apartment in Carter Dormitory. “They [students] used to baby-sit me, come and cheer for me at my little league games, and treat me like a family member,” said Mr. Quirk.
Dave Bush is a resident faculty member and practicing artist, who believes deeply that art is everywhere. Mr. Bush challenges students and adults within The Hun School community to make connections between personal creativity and artistic expression in their daily lives. And, for the past twenty years, he has leveraged art education at The Hun School as a tool for self-discovery and exploration.
Proctors are student leaders in the Resident Life community. They are invaluable student resources in campus-life. They help new students adjust to life away from home and act as liaisons between students and faculty in the dormitories.
