Leadership Opportunities

Despite the many commitments students have in the classroom and with athletics, there are plenty of available options for extracurricular activities and social life on the Hilltop. Salisbury has dozens of clubs, activities and publications that are mostly student-run, offering a wide range of venues for creative and leadership opportunities. And with X block in the daily class schedule, students are able to participate in a variety of extracurricular, performing and literary arts experiences, and music lessons during their school day.

Meet Duncan

Connecticut Private Boys High School Student Feature

Duncan Morris
Sixth Former
School President
Hometown: Park City, UT 

What has been your favorite class so far at Salisbury and why?
Entrepreneurial Studies.  I ended up diving completely into everything we did in the class, starting with becoming a master of Excel.  By the end of the year I’d finished two, 16-plus page business plans for two separate businesses I was interested in starting on campus, which led to the production of the currently available Salisbury School Wall Calendar.

What are some of your favorite clubs or extracurricular activities?
I’ve been a part of Student Government the past two years as All-School President, and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.  While working my way up the ranks and establishing a presence within the community, I was able to be “in the loop” with all sorts of different things going on around campus.  The Student Council tends to be underrated at most schools, however it’s incredible how much freedom and responsibility it has at Salisbury; we’re able to really make things happen. However, it’s up to the students to put things into action.

What or who inspires you and why?
With my role in the school being what it is, I spend a lot of time thinking about everybody around me--and how I can work to promote their success.  I see many similar schools with certain traditions and things they do that really make them unique, and I want to see our school fully invested in everything we do.  The thought of a hockey game with every single student packed into the rink is the goal.

What has been the most rewarding aspect of your Salisbury experience?
I would say that the most rewarding aspect is knowing I am doing things myself, the thought that I am maturing.  Thriving on your own, and knowing that you are doing well is the most satisfying feeling.  Nobody can say your parents helped you through; you did it all on your own.

What advice could you offer new Salisbury students?
No matter how you’re feeling coming in, just make the most of everything Salisbury has to offer.  Don’t leave this place wishing you did something you didn’t get around to!
