I had the opportunity to attend my first independent school open house of the season this past weekend. I love the atmosphere of an open house; there is so much excitement in the air. From the buzz of potential families chatting to the enthusiasm of the faculty and staff as they showcase how they fulfill the mission, open houses really emphasize the community feel.

If you have enthusiastic answers to all the answers above, then follow the next steps of engagement for the school admissions process, which may include a parent tour, the application, a student visit day or an interview.
Enjoy your school visits!
