Student Activities

Life at Salem Academy is full of special activities for students—the hard part is choosing what to do. 

Known as the City of the Arts, Winston-Salem is a vibrant, culturally rich community, with many opportunities that are in walking distance of our campus. Fellowship Council plans school activities for both boarding and day students, which include things like dances with boys’ schools, camping trips, and day trips to nearby cities. Students often visit Wake Forest University for special events, such as athletic games or lectures. 

Cultural events abound—whether it’s the opera, the symphony, or an international film festival, there’s no shortage of opportunity. Shopping trips to Target, Thruway Center, and Hanes Mall are built into each week. Students are welcome to make their own plans, too. It’s a short walk to Old Salem for a snack at Winkler Bakery and a stroll on the greenway!
