Parent Tours (Required)

Parents and guardians interested in applying children to Beauvoir are required to tour the School unless they have previously done so. We recommend registering early for a Parent Tour since they fill quickly. Visits will include a tour of the facilities given by a Beauvoir parent, followed by a conversation about Beauvoir's philosophy and instructional program with a member of the Admissions Team. Parent Tours are designed for prospective parents and guardians and are offered on selected weekday mornings from mid-September through early January and last approximately 75 minutes.

Open Houses (Optional)

Open Houses provide a unique opportunity to hear more about Beauvoir’s philosophy and program directly from faculty, administrators and members of the community. In addition, there is time to meet current parents who are on hand to share their impressions of Beauvoir. Open Houses are designed for prospective parents and guardians and last approximately two hours.

Parent Meetings (Optional)

Parents and guardians interested in meeting with a member of the Admissions Team are welcome to register for a Parent Meeting through Ravenna. A Parent Tour of the School is required prior to the meeting. Some Parent Meetings are available at select times following tours.  Parent Meetings provide an opportunity to share additional information about your child with a member of the Admissions Team. Meetings are limited and are available from September through December.
