Open Houses

Virtual Open House

In addition to our in-person Open Houses this past fall, the Admissions team hosted a virtual Upper and Middle School Open House, recorded December 10, 2022. The recording can be viewed below.

A PANEL OF faculty, students, Admissions staff and Northwest's Head of School, Ray Wilson, convene online to answer questions from parents and guardians interested in learning more about Northwest's unique, student-centered approach, as well as the curriculum that supports it. This panel was held on December 10, 2022.

Joining Ray Wilson on the panel were Latrisha Chattin (Middle School director), James Joseph (Upper School director), Scott Davis (Humanities), Chris Talone (Math) and Keelen C. (Class of 2023). The panel was hosted by Director of Admissions Alex Halladay.

Financial Aid Q & A

The Northwest School's financial aid director, Jonathan Hochberg, meets with interested families in a Q & A format recorded on Zoom. Jonathan fields questions about deadlines (spoiler alert: February 3), Northwest's unique financial process, what "needs based" actually means, and what documentation families will need to submit their financial aid application.

Virtual Tour

Visit our campus virtually! Take a walk around our main school building to see our classrooms. Then visit the 401 E. Pike building, which houses our gym, theater, rooftop playfield, dining hall and athletic mezzanine. We plan to add the newest addition to our campus, the Summit Building, to the virtual tour later this year. 

Finally, take a tour of our dormitory and urban garden!
