<a href='http://www.hyde.edu/campus-life/'>Campus Life</a> Campus life at Hyde is all about being an active and engaged member of the community. An emphasis on character–courage, integrity, leadership, curiosity, and concern—provides the cornerstone for learning—in the classrooms, dormitories, the arts, and on the athletic fields.
<a href='http://www.hyde.edu/hydestories/'>Hyde Stories</a> Hyde Stories are thirteen intimate, personal interviews with recent Hyde private boarding school alumni, parents, faculty, and staff. Each reveals a distinctive aspect of Hyde's unique education.
<a href='http://www.hyde.edu/academics/'>Academics</a> Hyde's academic program builds skills and develops confidence. Ninety-eight percent of Hyde students attend four-year colleges.
<a href='http://www.hyde.edu/arts/'>Visual/Performing Arts</a> Hyde students all participate in visual or performing arts. The arts program allows students to express their creativity, appreciate the world around them, enhance public speaking and presentation skills, and take pride in their work.
Community Service Concern for others is at the center of Hyde's principles, and our students are engaged in community service on many levels. Our students participate in programs such as the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters, blood drives, fundraising and work in local homeless shelters and soup kitchens.
<a href='http://www.hyde.edu/athletics/'>Athletics</a> All students participate in three sports during the academic year. Hyde Schools athletic programs offer seasoned athletes, novice athletes, and athletes whose abilities fall somewhere in between an opportunity to explore leadership potential by developing skills that can help them become effective problem-solvers, strategists, and strong team players.

The gymnasium includes weight and wrestling rooms and basketball courts. One of the unique features of the Woodstock campus is a state-of-the-art, 1,017 seat theater, also home to the Opera New England and Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut.
