Personal Enrichment

“Today is life – the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today.
Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby.
Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.”

– Dale Carnegie

We give boys time to pursue personal enrichment activities at our boy boarding school to, as Dale Carnegie said, “let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through” them. These activities may spring from an interest or longtime passion held by the student, or there may be something that he has been wanting to explore but hasn’t had the chance. These activities may challenge the mind, foster curiosity and creativity, build new skills, or be done just for the sheer joy of it! We know that enrichment activities can spark the imagination and have the potential to become lifelong interests.

Many of these activities are brought with the students when they arrive at Cherokee Creek Boys School and are shared with fellow students. These include, but aren’t limited to:

 

Hobbies / Clubs

Model building, auto mechanics, gardening, yo-yoing
