Plan a Visit
In order to keep our school community safe during this time, we will require that all of our Stags for a Day to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide negative COVID-19 test results dated within 72 hours of the visit.
As they check-in with our Stags for a Day coordinator, visiting students can either provide a picture of their vaccination card showing they have received at least one dose, or the results of their negative test. In addition, we will ask your son to complete a brief health screening at the start of the day and to wear a well-fitting mask while inside any of our campus buildings.
We believe that prospective students and families will benefit greatly from coming to campus in-person. Scroll down below to learn about our Information Sessions and Open House as several opportunities to visit our campus.
On-Campus Visit Sign-Up
Families of 8th graders and transfers will have the opportunity to spend time in each of the campus buildings as well as meet with various faculty members.
Visits will last approximately an hour and 30 minutes, and parents will be required to accompany students throughout the visit. Please contact Director of Admissions Pat Goulden at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up for an on-campus visit. Campus Tours are scheduled during the summer, and provide families with a guided walk through campus. Time is spent in and around each of the campus buildings, as visitors get to experience the small college campus atmosphere. (By appointment only)
Parents and prospective students are invited to join us on Sunday, November 7th for our Admissions Open House. It's a great opportunity for prospective students, currently in middle school, and their families visit DeMatha. Visitors are welcomed by a concert from our Music Program, the Admissions Staff offer a general information session, Dr. McMahon presents "The Six Pillars of DeMatha," and families are given self or student guided tours through campus where they learn more about DeMatha--academics, arts, music, athletics, service, co-curricular activities and plans for the future.
Information Sessions provide a more intimate informational experience. Twice in the fall and once in the spring the Admissions Staff gathers with families in the Kilby Alumni Lounge to share information about DeMatha and the high school admissions process.
