Admission Open House

Saturday, November 4th, 10am–1pm

At the annual Admission Open House, families can discover how Gordon stimulates a child's innate curiosity and empowers them to think, question, lead and collaborate confidently in the evolving world we live in.
The morning begins at 10am, with an introduction from the Head of School, and performances by Gordon students. Then, all classrooms are open, with parents and students ready to give tours and teachers who are there to talk about their work.
Families can also learn about FIT: Family Individualized Tuition, where families pay a customized tuition based on their individual circumstances.
There is no RSVP necessary, but all are invited to join the "Considering Gordon for your Child?" email list.
