As the autumn season continues to progress at private boarding schools around the globe, students on all campuses are hurriedly dashing from class to class, writing papers and preparing for pep rallies. Have you ever noticed, however, that you tend to walk just a little bit faster to some classes while you drag your feet to others? Your favorite class says a lot about who you are — whether you realize it or not.
Technical, Analytical and Practical — Sound Like You?
Private boarding schools offer more diverse course offerings than regular high schools. As a result, you may have enrolled in one of the unique technology classes at Wasatch Academy such as Intro to Robotics, Animation, Game Design or Digital Audio. If you find that you’re going way above and beyond on your Robotics class homework or sailing through the class with straight A’s, there’s a high chance that you’re analytical, logical and practical. You may be a realist, and you see the world as an interconnected machine that hums along smoothly.
Don’t Disturb Me — I’m Reading
Are you camped out at the library in your spare time, absorbing the classics and hungry for literary knowledge? If English seems to be your forte, there’s a high chance that you’re simultaneously analytical, creative and a bit of an idealist. Perhaps you find that the beauty of literature is that it can portray the world in a number of ways. You don’t always accept a global, objective perspective of the world — you prefer to view the world through the subjective lenses of a Charlotte Bronte or William Faulkner novel.
Live, Breathe and Sleep Fine Arts
You practically live in the Studio Arts building on campus. You’ve maxed out the number of Fine Arts credits you can take per semester, and you’re hungry for more. Fortunately, private boarding schools are never short on Fine Arts classes. If this sounds like you, there’s a high chance that you live and breathe creativity, and are eager for self-expression in any form. You’re detail-oriented and perhaps a bit of a free spirit who shuns cultural norms in exchange for freedom of expression.
Hungry for Knowledge About the Physical World
You’re tight with your physics teacher, and you wouldn’t be caught dead missing a lab day in biology. Science fascinates you. If this sounds like you, then you’re probably the curious, intellectual type who yearns to understand the world around you. You’re not simply satisfied with accepting the status quo — you want to know why. Fortunately, most boarding high schools offer excelled classes in science (including several AP courses), so it’s safe to say that you’ll always have something interesting to study — whether it’s chemistry, physics, biology or additional fields of science.
