• Open House Sessions

    For students and their parents/guardians.

    As part of the Admissions process, we ask parents and students to attend one of our Open Houses. A visit/tour is not required for admissions  but is strongly suggested. Open Houses are 2 hours long; families should plan to stay for the duration of the program.

    During our Open House events, childcare is provided for children under 10 years old.
