Upper School Admissions

Come for a visit!

We are excited to get to know you and your family and to provide a well-rounded view of all the wonderful opportunities an SCH Upper School education offers. We look forward to learning about your child’s interests and passions, whether it is in the arts, on the athletic field, or in the science lab, and we want to hear what he or she does in school and out of school.
SCH Academy offers several opportunities for prospective students and their families to visit our campus. Our Upper School visiting days are customizable to your choosing. Here are a few options:

Half-Day Visit
  • Students applying to 9th grade may visit either their current grade level (8th grade) or 9th grade.
  • Students applying to grades 10–12 will visit in their current grade level.
Full-Day Visit
  • For students applying to 9th grade, we can design a customized shadow day to fit your child’s interests. Please call for more information about full-day visits.
  • Students applying to grades 10–12 will visit in their current grade level.
Family Tour
  • We offer private family tours so that you can share in the experience of seeing our campus in action. These tours provide a customized experience designed to allow families to visit classrooms, walk through our busy hallways, and talk with specific individuals along the way.
