We would be thrilled to discuss Midland with you further. Below, please find some questions and answers about life as a student at Midland.
Is there a dress code?
We expect our students to conform to a dress code best described as “casual.” Clothing should be appropriate, neat, clean and in good repair.
Are there scheduled study hours?
Yes. Students study quietly in their rooms, or the library or a faculty member’s home on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights from 7:30-9:00 pm.
How can I get extra help?
The majority of teaching faculty live on campus at Midland so faculty members are available throughout the day and into the evening to help students.
Is there an athletics program?
Yes, all students are required to participate in an interscholastic sport during two of the three athletic seasons – fall, winter and spring.
Tell me about the advising system.
Each Midland faculty member serves as an advisor to a small number of students and meets with them as needed, to monitor their progress, give audience to their concerns, and guide them through the rigors and challenges, and expectations that go along with being a Midlander. Students are assigned a particular advisor for their first year, and though they may choose another at the end of their first year, most remain with that advisor for their Midland career.
What is a typical day like?
The academic week extends from Monday through Saturday, with faculty and student commitments on Sunday. Within the academic week, time is dedicated to academic instruction, the jobs program, activities and athletics and supervised study hall.
What are the driving directions the Midland School campus?
