Take-A-Looks provide a general overview of the Admissions process, the academic program for the Division you are considering, a meeting with the appropriate Division Head and a Campus Tour. A Take-A-Look may be scheduled for a parent only or for a parent and child together.

Classroom Visits

Spending time in classes with our faculty and students is often the best way to determine if Chase is right fit for your child.  We encourage prospective students to spend the greater part of the school day with us in order to experience classes, Division meetings and lunch.  During the visit,an admission interview (for Middle and Upper School applicants) and an educational assessment (for Lower School applicants) will be conducted.  Parents will also have an opportunity to meet with the Admissions Team.

Visitors do not need to bring anything with them for their classroom visit.  Lunch and snack are included in tuition, so visitors are provided the same.  Although not required to be in Chase dress code, we do ask that visiting students wear attire in the spirit of dress code; this includes collared shirts and khaki or other colored pants or a skirt (no denim).  Upon arrival, visitors should park in the Main Parking Lot and follow the signs to St. Margaret’s Hall.  

Open Houses

Open Houses provide families with the opportunity to learn more about the Division you are exploring.  Faculty, Current Students, Parents and Administrators are on hand to answer your questions from their points of view.  An overview of the Admissions process as well as a Campus Tour are included.
