Start Your Journey.
The best way to get a feel for Park is to visit. That’s what our admission process is all about. Our admission team is your partner to help you find the best fit for your child’s early childhood, elementary, and middle school education.
Tours & Interviews for Parents
Once you’ve completed your online inquiry form, you’ll schedule a morning visit to tour the School and have an interview. A parent will lead you on a tour of the school and give you the opportunity to learn first-hand what your family can expect from a Park education. Then, you'll have an interview with someone from our Admission team.
We’re committed to learning all we can about our applicants and their families as they consider attending Park. These visits last approximately two hours; longer if you attend Morning Meeting. We prefer that all parents and guardians attend, although we understand that this is not always possible. A parent tour and interview are required of applying families, even if you attend the Open House. Tours begin Tuesday, October 1.
After we've received your application, your child will get to make their own visit to Park—usually in January. Applicants to PreK and K participate in a playgroup with other children. Older children visit classrooms during the school day alongside our students to sample all we have to offer, both in the classroom and beyond. Read more in the Applying to Park section.
Fall Open House
Our Open House is a wonderful opportunity to engage in informative discussions with current parents, faculty, and our older students about the Park School community while touring the School. Older children are welcome to attend, especially potential applicants to our Upper Division. Given the number of visitors, however, the Open House can be overwhelming for younger children, especially those entering PreK and Kindergarten. Please don't feel obligated to bring them. There is no need to RSVP to this event.
Sunday, November 3, 12–3 p.m.
Spring Open House
Considering Park for your family? Curious about the independent school admission process? Parents, please join us for a tour of the School followed by an informative session with Park’s Admission Office to learn about the application process for next fall. RSVP required.
Wednesday, May 6, 8–10 a.m.
While Park feels like a neighborhood school, families live in nearly 30 cities and towns in the greater Boston area. To help reduce the traffic on Goddard Avenue and mitigate the School’s carbon footprint, we encourage families to carpool and utilize school-provided transportation to get to and from Park. We strive to serve as many communities as possible and currently 48% of our students participate.
For the current transportation routes and schedules,
We look forward to your visit!
