Tours

Except for our Parent-Child tours, we find that limiting the tours to adults only allows parents to concentrate fully on the information provided. Prospective students will have an opportunity to visit the school during the admissions process.

Parents are escorted to the areas of the school that are of most interest to them — early childhood, lower school, or high school and will observe various indoor and outdoor class activities and lessons.

Parent-Child

By-appointment, parent-child tours are for infants and toddlers accompanied by their parent or guardian. The tour includes the indoor classroom and outdoor campus areas where parent-child activities take place, including the farm.
