Clubs, Activities & Just Plain Fun

Being involved in, or creating a club is a great way for a Salisbury Knight to share or find an interest or passion. While we offer a nice menu to choose from, students are always encouraged to introduce something new! See the slideshow below to view our current clubs, organizations and leadership opportunities.

Clubs, Organizations and Leadership Opportunities 

Salisbury hosts a Big Brother program that pairs little brothers from Salisbury Central School (grades 3-5) with Salisbury boys. On many Friday evenings, the little brothers join our boys for dinner in the Dining Hall and then head down to the Flood Athletic Center for various activities ranging from soccer, basketball, and skating to games like chess, Uno, cards, and Legos.

Sarum Games are a fun component of our residential program, incorporating a lighter side of brotherhood in our Dorm Competitions. The events include intellectual challenges, citizenship recognition, and athletic contests. Evening dodgeball games and pumpkin pie-eating contests are among the most popular and competitive!

The Culinary Club regularly meets to gain cooking skills, be creative, experiment, socialize, have fun, and reap the benefits of enjoying foods that are made from scratch.

Our Dramatic Society is one of the most vibrant and inclusive organizations on the Hilltop, drawing participants from all four forms, all athletic teams, the faculty, faculty families, and -for female roles- other schools in the region. The Dramatic Society mounts two productions each year- one in the fall trimester, the other in the winter trimester.

Prefects are a Salisbury Tradition. These sixth formers assist dormitory faculty in leading the supervision of the dorms and day students. Perfects are selected for their leadership ability and serve as role models to the students within the dorm and around campus.

At Salisbury, we work hard to instill in our students a sense of leadership that is authentic to each boy. The leadership offerings are endless, ranging from Prefect, Peer Leaders, sports captains, Club advisory, and Student Government.

The robotics program at Salisbury offers students the opportunity to design, build, and program robots for contending in nationwide competitions.  Offered in place of a sport during the fall and winter trimester, students work together as a team at the robotics lab in the Wachtmeister-Bates Math and Science Building.  In 2019, the school invested in a 144 square foot arena from Vex Robotics.  The VEX Robotics Design System offers students an exciting platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Math Team

The goal of the math team at Salisbury is to improve students' problem solving abilities while having fun!  Everybody is welcome and encouraged to join.  The math team competes in several international competitions throughout the year.  In February, dozens of students take the American Mathematics Competition (AMC), held on our campus.  We are proud to support a small group of students who then qualify for the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), among the top mathematics students in the country.  

Also in February, eight students selected from the math team represent Salisbury at the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT) in Cambridge, MA.  HMMT is one of the largest and most prestigious high school competitions in the world. Each tournament draws close to 1000 students from around the globe, including top scorers at national and international olympiads.  This school sponsored trip is an amazing opportunity for our students to experience the Harvard and MIT campuses while competing against some of the best student mathematicians internationally.

Additionally, the Salisbury math team fosters engagement with other local boarding schools' math teams while attending events such as the Hotchkiss Math Bash. For more information contact Instructor in Mathematics Scot Beattie.
