School ends on Friday afternoon, and any student is ready to wind down and unplug a bit from their scholastic rigor.

Weekends at Orme provide healthy and fun activities off-campus—from attending college basketball games at Arizona State University with a bus load of friends, to shopping and a movie at nearby retail centers, to skiing, snowboarding, biking or rock climbing—arranged by one of your teachers. Students may formally complete an Off-campus Request Permission Form for a weekend pass to stay with a fellow Orme Arizona student, and have a chance to get to know a new Orme family. Students can also make suggestions to Orme staff so they may shape their own menu of weekend options.
