Field prefers that parents come for the small morning tours and then, if they believe Field may be right for their child, apply and schedule a classroom visit for the student. These small-group tours allow you to see the school up-close and the classes in action. They also include a question-and-answer session with the Director of Admissions, Enrollment, and Financial Aid. Though these tours are designed for parents, students interested in the 10th or 11th grade are also welcome.
The monthly information sessions throughout the first half of the school year are open to students as well as parents, providing a more general view of the school and what it has to offer. We find that students get a much keener picture of Field from the required visit to the school after the formal application has been received. When students visit Field for their day, we realize that they will most likely be seeing the school for the first time. But in our experience, differentiating the visit for students and parents provides the best opportunity for both to understand what Field is all about.
