Financial Aid Workshop (8:30 am-9:00 am)

Parents are invited to stay for a brief Financial Aid Workshop on the morning of each entrance exam. Lori Wooten, Director of Finance, and Adrienne Niles, Director of Enrollment Management, will answer our most frequently asked questions about how to apply for need-based assistance for middle and upper school. We will gather interested parents once the girls are settled in their testing rooms. Campus tours will still be available following the workshop.
