Choosing to apply to an independent school requires you to make a lot of decisions. Why? Because schools are not “one-size fits all”; a given school might appeal to one person more than another due to program offerings, amenities, location, or school culture. When you are researching schools, it’s important to not only look at a website and brochures, but also pay a visit.
It’s Open House season, so here are three reasons why you should plan to visit St. Clement’s School:
1. To get a feel for the school
While you can learn about SCS through our website and marketing materials, you get a real feel for our culture by visiting us in person. Hearing laughter and chatter in the hallways, seeing the artwork on the walls, experiencing a tour, and attending an assembly when you visit all help to give a better idea of what it’s like to be a Clementine.
2. To meet the faculty and students
Our school building certainly sets the scene but the people who make up our community really impact the overall school experience. At an SCS Open House event, you have an opportunity to interact and speak with faculty and students. Don’t be shy; ask them all of your questions to help you make an informed decision about whether or not St. Clement’s is the right fit for you.
3. To learn about the admissions process
Whether or not you are able to attend our Open House isn’t going to determine your chances of acceptance, but the more you can connect with our School by planning a visit, connecting with the members of the Admissions Department, and speaking to faculty, the more we will be able to provide you with the information that’s relevant to you as a unique prospective applicant.
We look forward to welcoming you with doors wide open for the first of our two fall Open House dates, Friday, October 21 from 8:30 – 11:00 a.m. Come and see what SCS is all about; get a feel for our close-knit community and school spirit, and learn about the application journey.
Can’t make it to this one? Pre-register and join us for our next Open House on Friday, November 18 from 8:30 – 11:00 a.m.
