Each boy is required to participate in extracurricular activities, designed to develop sportsmanship, physical strength, leadership, and a sense of self-worth. Varsity teams compete with area high schools in basketball, cross-country, wrestling, soccer, track and field, and badminton. On an individual basis, boys can challenge themselves with the parachuting course, canoeing, scuba, rock climbing, rappelling, orienteering, and other outdoor adventure activities. Some 20 clubs are organized to meet a variety of interests such as boxing, mountain biking, photography, computers, chess, army cadets (RCAC), and many more.
Typically, boys can return home approximately once a month for a four-day weekend and can apply for additional leaves if their effort warrants extra privileges.
