Family Visiting Day 2021

Parents and other family members are invited to attend Family Visiting Day on Saturday, October 16, 2021 to learn about their child’s academic program at George School.  The day will begin with an address from Head of School Sam Houser where he will share information about the state of the school.  This will be both in-person and livestreamed.  Next, you can follow your child’s schedule and attend 15 minute in-person classes, where Faculty will review their course details and plans for the academic year.

Throughout the afternoon, consultations will be held with the student, parents or guardians and the advisor. Consultations can happen in person or via Zoom.  Online Consultation scheduling will open on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. EDT.  Consultation scheduling is closed on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.  Advance online scheduling is required. All Virtual Consultations will be held via Zoom; links will be provided on the Parent Portal.  If attending consultation virtually, please check the box “I am planning to meet with the advisor virtually via Zoom”, located on the top of the schedule.

*Advisor Consultation and mini class schedules for families will be available on the Portal beginning Friday morning, October 15 at 10:00 a.m. EDT.
