Open Houses

During a weekend Open House you and your child will have the chance to learn about the School's academic, arts and athletics programs, review application procedures as well as to tour the campus. Faculty, students and parents will also be available to answer your questions.  A School Day In Motion offers an opportunity to visit active classrooms and get a "feel" for a typical school day.

Parent Previews

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.

Shadow Days

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.  

Chase Story Place is a new story time for toddlers and preschoolers, scheduled on the first and third Fridays of each month at 10:15 am in McTernan Centennial Library. Plan to join us for a story featuring an author of the month as well as a related activity and snack. Register today!

  • February 6, 2015 10:15 am
  • February 20, 2015 10:15 am
  • March 6, 2015 10:15 am
