Past Events:

Discover the Value of Independent Schools

Watch the recording of the Value of Independent Schools webinar here! 

We invite you to join directors of admission from five local schools to learn about educational choices available to your child and the value of an independent school education. They will debunk common misconceptions about independent schools and answer questions about their programs, the admission process, financial aid, and much more!

If your family is considering independent school options or you are interested in learning more, please join us for an informal panel discussion and Q&A in webinar format. Parents and students are both welcome.
