Athletics Game Day Information:
The sextant is an instrument for determining the angle between the horizon and a celestial body such as the sun, the moon, or a star. It is used in celestial navigation to determine latitude and longitude.
Dr. R. Heber Howe, our founding head of school, explained the significance of the sextant and why it was chosen as our emblem during a speech at the closing exercises of Belmont Hill on Friday, June 6, 1924.
