Kingswood Oxford invites prospective Upper School students and their families to an Open House on Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014, from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. The Open House is for students applying to grades 9, 10, or 11 for September 2015 enrollment.

Registration begins at 1 p.m. in Roberts Theater; at 1:30 p.m., Head of School Dennis Bisgaard and Assistant Head of School for Academic Life Natalie Demers will offer an overview of the KO community and academic program.

Then, families will explore the campus with a Shield & Dragon tour guide, which is a specially selected KO student ambassador. The length of the tour is flexible, depending on a family’s interests and time constraints.

Teachers and coaches will offer examples and insight into KO’s innovative techniques, outstanding resources, and rich student life. Current parents and Admissions Office staff will be available to answer questions, and light refreshments will be available. The event will end at 3:30 p.m..

“Most families understand that KO offers a dynamic academic experience, but it isn’t until they visit campus and engage in conversation with our faculty and current students and parents that they begin to realize the impact that a KO education can have on the life of their child,” said Jim O’Donnell, KO’s Director of Enrollment Management.

Families who cannot attend the Open House but wish to learn more about KO should contact the Admissions Office ([email protected] or 860-727-5000) for an interview and tour.
