Parent Coffees

The admission office hosts weekday Parent Coffees throughout the fall at the middle school and upper school. These information sessions are intended for parents of prospective students applying for admission in 2018. You will have the opportunity to hear from the director of admission, faculty, deans, students, and current parents. Optional student-led tours of the middle school or upper school campus are available.

Currently, Parent Coffees are completed for the 2017-18 admission cycle.

We will offer Spring Coffees in May 2018 for current parents of 5th grade students. Please fill out an online inquiry so we will be able to notify you when those are available.
