Arranging A Visit

There's no better way to get a feel for a school than walking its hallways. You should plan on 90 minutes for your visit and you are welcome to bring your child(ren) along if you choose. The Admissions Office accepts its first appointment at 09:00 and its last appointment at 14:00, which ensures that you will be visiting classrooms while students are fully engaged. Appointments are scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday. To schedule your personal visit, please contact us by phone or email.
