Who should attend the Open House?
Families considering Belmont Day School for pre-kindergarten to eighth grade are encouraged to attend this open house, the only one we host. Some parents prefer to use the open house to introduce their child to a potential school and experience it as a family. Other parents prefer to preview schools on their own before involving the child in the school search process. We support both choices and therefore leave the choice of bringing your child or attending without your child up to you. The event will have two tracks of experiences: the family track, for parents and children to experience together, and another set of programming for parents who elect to attend without their child in tow.
What will my family experience?
The event kicks off at 9:30 a.m. with a welcome from our head of school and a great student and alumni panel. Then, at 10:00 a.m. the family track and the parent-only track diverge.
If you elect to bring your child to the event, you and your child will chose from a diverse menu of sample 20-minute experience classes taught by our talented faculty. Your first 20-minute class allows you to delve into our academic program with your child. Your second 20-minute class will let you explore one of our arts or athletic programs.
If you choose to attend without your child, you will have a choice of 20-minute parent-only information sessions and have a chance to connect with our senior administrators.
Following your two sessions, from 11:10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., we will offer all visitors student-guided tours and the opportunity to visit grade level classrooms and meet faculty.
What if I can't arrive on time?
The full event runs from from 9:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. If you are not able to join us for the full event, you are welcome to arrive late! Enter through the marked event entrance and one of our volunteers will help you check in and join the program in progress.
