Upcoming Events

We hope to provide prospective families who are applying for the fall of 2023 with a range of opportunities to connect with members of our community during this admission season. While the parent/guardian interview is the best time to focus on questions specific to your child(ren) and family, the events below provide another forum in which you may ask questions and learn more about Shady Hill.

(Events are optional and for families applying for entry in fall 2023 only.)
