Virtual Tour

Campus Visit

Our "Tour and a Chat" program provides families the opportunity to tour the School and speak with an Admissions Representative prior to your engagement in the application process.  

  • Lower School visits (grades Jk-5) are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 a.m. 
  • Middle School (grades 6-8) and Upper School (grades 9-12) visits are available Monday-Friday with appointment slots at 8:15 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

All families visiting campus are asked to check-in at reception which is located in the Upper School Building. Here you will be greeted by an Admissions Representative and oriented for your visit.

Shadow Visits
Students in grades 1-8 spend a day on campus and visit classes as part of their admission process.  While optional, Upper School students have the opportunity to shadow a current student once they have completed their formal interview.  These visits are offered on select dates this fall (see below).  Shadow visits are from 11:45-2:45pm and include lunch.
