Cherry Valley High (Boarding School RPG)

Recommended Posts

Cherry Valley High is one of the nation's most prestigious boarding schools in the nation. Set in scenic Central New York, it is far from the bustle of cities which can often disturb the academic environment needed for students to achieve their full potential. CVH takes pride in its elite student body, accepting only the best and the brightest to attend the school. These students are taught by some of the finest teachers in the nation, all of whom are completely dedicated to helping their pupils meet success. It is a highly competitive school and students often find that they must work hard to just to maintain a decent grade, and even harder to stay ahead of their classmates. Students may also take time our of their busy schedules to participate in the school's excellent athletic program. They live in dorms with one roommate and the school's resident advisors are available at all times to provide any help or guidance as well as discipline that the students need. The library has a vast collection of books with subjects about everything a student may have questions about. The cafeteria is catered daily by a local restraunt and is delicious. In order to make the school as comfortable as possible, tuition is quite high but scholarships are available for talented scholars who may not be able to afford the school.

Summary: So basically you're going to be a student attending an elite boarding school for really smart/ really rich kids so keep that all in mind when you make your characters (not everyone is going to be all happy and sweet). It's a tough school, crazy competitive and there's loads of stress.

Rules: Be realistic, creative and original- I want loads of different types of characters! no pp, no gm, no mary sues, and KEEP THE FREAKING GUY/GIRL RATIO EVEN!

A stately black car pulled up in front of the girl's dorm and a dark haired girl stepped out after her Grandparents. She helped unload, bringing her bags and boxes over to the steps before turning to her Grandfather, giving him a quick hug as she promised to try hard and maintain her A average. Then she gave her regal looking Grandmother a hug as she dutifully smiled and promised to call at least once a week. Then they walked down the steps and got back into their car, driving off as they left Lia waving on the steps. She turned and moved her pile of boxes into the common room on the first floor before she made her way to the office to recieve her packet of information with her schedule and room key.

Kade hopped out of the car that had been hired to take him from the airport to the school. It had been a long and boring flight from Vegas and he was almost eager to arrive at the school so that he could unpack his bags, key word being almost. This school sounding incredibly lame. It was in the middle of nowhere and from the sounds of it the student body consisted of geeks, hardly the sort of kids Kade was used to hanging out with. He stepped out and slung his one bag over his shoulder before heading to the main building where he was told that the office was, hoping that his other bags had arrived on time.

Amy walked to the office,and took her packet information and room key.Amy leaned agianst the wall(outside the office door),letting her slim figure drop to the ground,till she was crouching while leaning agianest the wall.She sighed,taking the smells in once more,and smiled,glad school was back in 'session'.

Kevin,walked around,sort of shy and nervous.He looed around,and entered the office himself.He smiled nervously and took his information packet and room key with trembling fingers.He walked to the door,gluping down his nervousness,yet it still lingered.He opened the door,and stepped outside,heart thugging loudly.

ooc:I didn';t know if we could just say if we could get the packet and room key and leave or anything,so tell me if we weren't and I'll edit.

Age: 16

Grade: 11

Appearance: Hazel eyes, curly black hair, medium tanned

Background: He started at CVH as a freshman

Name: Cleo Phell

Gender: Female

Age: 15

Grade: 10

Classes: Latin, Drama, Photography

Appearance: She wears dark blue contacts, blonde hair that curls at her shoulder blades, tan

Background: This is her first year at the school

Sutton got out of the taxi cab, handing the driver a fold of bills that he had counted out. He pulled his bags out of the trunk and shut it, withdrawing his hand quickly as the cab tore out of the parking lot. He snorted crossly, glaring at the putrid yellow car; his parents had always been frugal, but that was rediculous.

Cleo sighed boredly, getting out of the black limo stiffly as it pulled up to the entrance of the school. She practically hissed as her mother pulled her back into the car for a quick hug. "You will be a good girl, won't you?" Mrs. Phell asked, giving her daughter what she thought to be an encouraging smile. But on her mother's face it was more like a toothy twitch. "Don't you have shopping to catch up on or something?" Cleo muttered pulling her bags out of the driver's hands as he tugged them from the trunk. Mr. Phell had gotten out of the limo as well and was giving his daughter a quick pat on the shoulder,"Have a good term," he said distantly before returning to the car. Cleo did not see her parents waving from the limo as it pulled out of the parking lot, as she had already turned away.

scratch what I posted before, I didn't know what I was doing

Calix went to get his room key from the office while his driver unloaded his many bags, putting them into the boys' dorm.

Aster looked around wide-eyed as her parents' station wagon pulled onto the school grounds. When they came to a stop outside the girls' dorm Aster hesitated for a moment, before stepping out. She helped her mom and dad unload her bags, then hugged them each tightly, exchanging "I love you"s before they leeft. Aster watched until the old car had dissapeared, then turned to carry her bags into the building.

Room-mate list:

Aster Hirsh/ Cleo Phell: Room 201

Amy Fleming/ Lauren Parker: 301

Magnolia Call/ Gabriella Cruz: 303

Kevin Al Dorado/ Kade Richards: 300

Calix Petrakis/ Sutton Taylor: 302

Alicia Toliver/ Ally Walker: 203

Leah O'Brian/ Meredith Stevens: 305

Jessie Toliver/ Thomas Khemese: 200

Kevin Williams: 304

Kade made his way through the line, barely glancing at the things he'd recieved in his envelope. He then made his way over to a wall where a small crowd had gathered. He pushed his way through to see what it was, a list of who was rooming with whom. He found the section with upper-class guys and glanced down through the names until he found his name beneath the name Kevin Al Dorado, "Super," He said dryly before turning to make his way to his dorm.

Once Lia recieved her packet she pulled out her schedule, carefully making sure that she had been placed in the correct classes. Then she quietly looked through all of the other sheets she had been given, reading them all carefully even though they looked to be the same that she'd recieved each year before.

A van pulled up to the front of the building and stopped. The back door opened and Alicia and Jessie got out. They went to grab their bags, then two little kids, all different ages jumped out. You could hear other childeren crying and fighting. They each pulled out two bags, then Jessie grabbed his guitar too. They reached over and gave their mother hugs, then all four other kids wanted hugs to. "Buy you guys, we'll see you later." as they walked off the mom yelled "Love you guys, and Jessie, look after your sister for me." They smiled and waved bye. They walked into the school together, looking around.

OOC:Ok I'm leaving here in about an hour and won't be back till tomorrow.

Bic:Lauren grabbed her packet before picking up her stuff and walking up stairs to her room.She took out her key and unlocked the door before walking in an setting her junk on the floor.

She sighed deeply as she shifted her gaze around the room."It's charming." She said to herself as she closed the door behind her.

She reached inside her package and read off the name that was going to be staying ehr for this term.'Amy Fleming.'She thought.Lauren poundered on the name trying to match a face from last year as she ran her fingers through her dark hair.

Sutton scanned his schedule, his eyes jumping automatically to their free time slot. "Not bad.." he muttered, folding his schedule and tucking it into his pocket. He grabbed his bags again and went to find his room, hoping that his roomate wasn't someone he'd end up wanting to knock out. Sutton stopped at an open door, watching as someone moved bags into the room while another person stood to the side. (I think that's whats going on Appy? If not, I'll edit!) "Uh, 302?" he questioned, leaning slightly on one foot to see the number on the door.

Cleo flicked back her hair as she stopped to get her room key. She shoved her schedule and information packet into her bag without looking at them, already positive that she'd gotten everything she wanted. Because, well, these things had a way of arranging themselves where the Phell's were involved. She picked up the handles of her bags, rolling them along slowly as she sought out her room.

Lia headed out of the main building to the girl's dorms and headed up to the upperclassmen floor, searching for her room, number 303. She smiled as she looked at the numbers, remembering how there were no even's in this building. All the girls numbers were odd, all the boys were even. It was just another of those quirky things at the school that she loved. She was quite pleased that she'd be on the third floor this year for although you had to climb an extra set of stairs to get there, the upperclass rooms were nicer, slightly larger and better furnished and each with their own bathroom, on the floor below there was a bathroom for every two rooms. She stepped inside, bringing the first of her bags in before heading out again to get the rest of her things.

Kade grabbed his envelope, heading across the green to the boys dorm building. As he walked, he flipped through his papers, wondering if they'd given him anything remotely interesting. In his opinion, they hadn't but by that point he had reached his room and stepped inside. It was nice and they'd done a good job of making it look "homey" but it hardly resembled his home so instead it looked boring and lame. He sighed, but brightened as he noticed that his things had, in fact arrive, so he headed over and found the one that held his laptop and computer software and lugged it over the desk begin setting it up.

A smart car pulled up outside neatly. Leah stepped out and shut the door, before getting her luggage out the boot.

'Bye mother.' She said shortly, before shutting the boot door firmly and walking up to the main entrance. She received her map of the school out of her bag and had a go at reading it. She pulled a face, shaking her head, as she made no sense whatsoever of the complicated map.

'Oh great.' She sighed. 'First day here and I'm completely lost.'

As the white Escalade Ally's parents owned slowed to a stop, she thanked the driver and got out. No, it wasn't her mother, father, or anyone in their family. They had all been to busy to see her off so it was a family friend who's car had broken down a week before. Waving goodbye, she grabbed her bags and walked to the main entrance, her eyes looked critically over the buildings. Sighing, she walked in and stood silently, her eyes looking around. She then wondered where she would be told her room, and room mate.

Sutton relaxed slightly, seeing no reason to get off to a bad start this year. "Yeah," he answered. "And you're... Calix, right?"

Cleo found room 201 and swung the door open. "Well, this is rather stuffy," she muttered, laying her judgement down. She walked in slowly, leaving her bags at the end of one of the beds.
