Dorm Monitor Application or the 2020-2021 School Year

Each spring, members of the sophomore and junior class are invited to apply to become monitors for the following academic year.  


  •  The Student Council nominates those students who, in the opinion of the Council, would be effective monitors
  •   The Dormitory Heads and Assistant Dorm Heads select those students they believe would be effective monitors.
  • The Administration, led by the Associate Headmaster and the Deans of Students, make the final selections. 

Students who wish to be monitors for the 2020-21 School year should complete and share this form with Mr. Brian Doyle before April 25, 2020.

  • Monitors need to be confident / strong willed / empathetic.
