School Tours

Take an in-person guided tour of the Lower School or Middle School campus and learn more about our program while seeing our campus and classrooms in action!

If you cannot find a spot for an in-person tour, please sign-up using Ravenna to join the January virtual tour. You will have an opportunity to visit our campus and meet our passionate team of teachers during our (optional but highly encouraged) in-person Open House: Aviator For A Day, a hands-on STEAM activity-focused event for children and families. The virtual tour counts towards the mandatory admissions step of attending a school tour.
