Weekends and Special Events
Life outside the classroom is part of our program—an active and fun part that brings us together as a united Gow while promoting leadership development, social and emotional growth, executive functioning, healthy decision-making, and self-advocacy skills.
Things to do at a Boarding School
After Saturday classes end, students have plenty of choices. The recreational facilities of the Gow Center, including a weight room, gyms, Table Tennis, billiards, and foosball, are open much of the time. Off-campus trips might include trips to local stores, movies, skiing, pro or collegiate sporting events, amusement or water parks, theater, skate parks, paint ball, or other attractions such as Niagara Falls, to name a few. Much-anticipated weekends include Winter Carnival, with events ranging from a human dog sled race to a pie-eating contest, and Spring Fest.
All these activities, plus athletics, keep students very busy. Both boarding and day students can take part in all aspects of student life.
