Try on Town: special events for applying families. 

We are building on our very successful year of in-person learning as we plan for 2021-22, but to best support our community's health and the health of our applying families, our Admissions events will continue to be virtual this fall. We had a great time sharing Town with prospective families through a series of online events this past year, and we are excited to continue and enhance our program! 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.

Informal chats with the Director of Admissions: Debbie Ashe offers prospective families the opportunity for an informal chat to answer any questions they may have as they begin their school application journey. Click here to sign up for a meeting.
