Come Visit!

We welcome the opportunity to meet you and learn more about your child. We offer several ways for you to visit us and learn more about our school and academic programs. 



This year, we will hold one in-person Open House and several virtual Open Houses.

Our in-person Open House on Saturday, October 16 @ 9:00 a.m. offers parents and guardians a look at our program from nursery school through grade 5. Head of School Andrea Myers will give you an overview of our school, you will meet teachers in their classrooms, and see our beautiful campus up close. You will finish the morning with a Q&A session with our faculty. Masks are required.

Our virtual Open Houses will explore different aspects of our program on the following schedule:

Wednesday, October 20 @ 7:00 p.m. - Social and Emotional Learning

Wednesday, November 10 @ 7:00 p.m. - Math

Wednesday, December 1 @ 7:00 p.m. - Literacy

Wednesday, January 12 @ 7:00 p.m. - Social Studies and Science Through Projects

Wednesday, April 13 @ 7:00 p.m. - The Arts



Private tours give parents and guardians a more detailed look at a particular division and allow for an opportunity to share more about your child. You will meet teachers, experience classes in session, and see our beautiful campus up close. Masks are required.

Both in-person Open Houses and private tours happen rain or shine so please dress accordingly.
