Academic Resources

Salisbury offers a number of excellent resources to assist boys in succeeding with their studies including:

Academic Classrooms

The Centennial Library and Humanities Building, The Wachtmeister Math & Science Building, the Field Music Center and the Ruger Fine Arts Center provide Salisbury boys with the very best in classroom and laboratory space.

The Phinny Library

The Phinny Library is the hub of learning at Salisbury.  It is a comfortable place where boys can study individually or in small groups. Our library contains nearly 25,000 volumes including 120 magazine, newspaper, and periodical subscriptions. The library's entire collection is catalogued and available on-line. Students and faculty members can also access information through a number of databases to which the library subscribes.  A member of the library staff is always available to assist boys in using its vast resources. Faculty members make it a point to give students assignments that are designed to ensure students have a firm understanding of how to research properly and how to use a variety of hard-copy and on-line resources available in our collection.

Technology

Salisbury prides itself on discovering new and exciting ways to integrate technology into the classroom. Our Educational Technology team works with faculty members in all disciplines to create new and dynamic teaching resources.  Our wireless network access provides coverage in nearly every location on campus. Salisbury wants boys to be connected, organized and productive.  Dorm rooms are equipped with wired and wireless access points and students are given their own network storage, e-mail and Web portal accounts to communicate with faculty and peers, as well as obtain access to critical academic resources.

Additional Services

Faculty members from the English and Mathematics Departments offer supplemental assistance to boys outside of the classroom.

"The Writing Garage" provides students with a convenient alternative to traditional extra help, as no appointments are needed to stop by for help with grammar, punctuation or suggestions for verbiage on writing assignments.  "The Math Lab" offer boys the opportunity to ask for additional assistance on class assignments or with SAT support.

Sessions for both are held during the academic week during X-block sessions.
