You'll learn as much out of the classroom as you will in it. Our community has the feel of a big family - at Dunn, you won't find constricting social groups. Our athletes are also our artists and musicians. You can do drama and play football, try surfing and robotics, run for student government or start a club.
Students and the Student Activities Coordinator plan fun events that offer something for everyone. Popular weekend activitieses include dorm competitions, school sports events, beach trips to popular Southern California beaches, shopping, dining in local restaurants, concerts, surfing, school dances, movies, dramatic/musical performances, museum trips, bowling, trips to Santa Barbara, UCSB special events, and amusement parks.
The best thing about Dunn is you always have friends to do things with. Seriously, no matter what you like to do, you can do it at Dunn.
Boarding life at Dunn is truly a unique experience in which students learn to become independent while living and learning among friends.
Boarding life prepares students for life at college, in a supervised and nurturing environment. For many students, boarding life is a key part of their Dunn School education and overall growth. Through living on campus amongst Dunn faculty and students in a close-knit community, students find their identity, develop talents, enjoy an extended family and establish friendships for life.
