It’s different in person
We can’t wait to meet you! There are multiple ways to introduce yourself to Watkinson: attending an info session, taking a tour, and/or spending a “day in the life” on campus.
An Info Session is an excellent way to get a sense of what Watkinson has to offer. Sessions run from 9:00–11:30 a.m. (with lunch after for those who are able to stay). Here’s a typical schedule:
- Registration & welcome with Teri Schrader, Head of School, and John Crosson, Director of Admission
- Attend All-School Meeting
- Campus tours & brief visits to classes in session
- Q & A panel with current students
- Lunch — all are welcome!
If the Info Session dates are not convenient for you, our Admissions staff are always happy to schedule a private tour for your family. This can be combined with parent/student interviews.
We encourage all prospective students to come for a full-day visit shadowing a current student. You will be able to attend classes, clubs, and activities, and lunch is provided. This is a great way to experience “a day in the life” at Watkinson. You’re welcome to visit either before or after you apply.
Directions & Parking
When you arrive on campus, please park in the main lot; we have designated spaces for admissions visitors. The walkway from the parking lot leads you to the main part of campus. Proceed to Feringa Hall, which is the first brick building on your left, with the large porch. Check in with our receptionist.
