Following the issuing of the first report card at the end of October, students who have shown themselves to be responsible academically and personally will earn the privilege of travelling independently with small groups of friends up to three weekends per semester. Weekend excursions might include an overnight at a ski destination in the Alps such as Verbier, Saas-Fee, and Davos or setting off on a 4-hour train ride from Neuchâtel to view Leonardo da Vinci's masterpieces in Milan. Independent weekend travel privileges must be granted by the Head of School and the student's parents. "Indie" travel develops confidence and accentuates the mandatory and optional school-chaperoned trips on the schedule.
