Student, Phillips Exeter Academy, Class of 2016,
Exeter students vary in their activities. Some live on campus while some are strictly day students. All Exeter students share a passionate love for learning, especially through the Harkenss method. The Harkness method involves a rather small class, with 12 students maximum, where faculty and students discuss the questions together as opposed to the standard lecture format. Students at Exeter must be prepared to speak, defend their opinion as well as lend a helping hand to others.
