Try on Town: special events for applying families. 

We are happy to have been in our school building for in-person, physically-distanced learning this year (learn more here), but to best support our community's health and the health of our applying families, our Admissions events will continue to be virtual for the near future. We had a great time sharing Town with prospective families through a series of brand-new online events this past year, and we are excited about building on those successes! Below is an overview of our planned events, and we will continue to update this page with dates and details. Inquire or apply to be automatically included in our invitation list.

Prospective families can look forward to a variety of ways to get to know Town during the Admissions season! Starting this fall, we will offer:

  • Monthly drop-in chats with the Head of School
