Tours and information sessions

The 2021–2022 admission season was modified by the school’s robust and cautious response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will know more as the 2022-2023 season approaches whether we will be able to relax some of those restrictions in the fall.

You must sign up in advance for each of these sessions using the Admission Portal, powered by Ravenna. Don't have an account yet? Complete the inquiry form first.
