Parent Tour and Interview

Parent visit.

After submitting your application, you will schedule your parent visit to Town, which includes both your interview with a member of the Admissions team and a tour of the school led by one of our outstanding faculty members.

Parent visit appointments are offered Monday through Friday in the mornings beginning September 23, 2019, and can be scheduled through your Admissions portal. Please allow about 90 minutes for your visit. 

We can't wait to meet your family and to show you our school in action!

Student Visit

Child visit.

Applicants to Nursery 3, Nursery, 4 and Kindergarten join an afternoon child visit group with fellow applicants, engaging in casual classroom activities and free play.

Children applying for Lower School or Upper School (1st - 8th grades) will spend a half day in a classroom of their current grade. Visiting children are assigned a buddy to help introduce them to Town, and during their visit, a Town learning specialist will assess math and reading skills in an informal one-to-one setting.

All child playgroups and visits are scheduled through the Admissions office. More details are available on the process page for each Division, and you are welcome to contact us any time with questions.
