Spring Visit Day - Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Family Interview

Our family interview, which will include your student and you, will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes.  As a family, you will talk with one of our admission associates.  Then, both you and your student will have a chance to talk with the same associate individually. 

 

Families often are curious about the interview.  Our goal is to get to know both your student and you.  What are your student's interests in and out of class?   How does your student spend free time?  What are you looking for in a secondary school for your student?  With dynamic classrooms that rely heavily on interpersonal relationships, we are looking for students whom we believe will thrive in that environment.   We work with students every day and we know that there are a wide array of personalities.  We carefully consider our observations in concert with the school records to create a complete picture of your student. 

We meet with families Monday through Friday, with appointments both during and after school to accommodate your schedule.  We welcome visitors all year but the majority of appointments for Fall 2017 admission will occur between mid-October to mid-January.

Please call Michelle Templeton at (314) 415-1259 to arrange your family interview.

You do not need to submit your application prior to your family interview; it is often beneficial for the student to attend a visit day prior to an interview.
