Visit the School (September through April)

  • Families Considering Prep for the First Time

    Parents may want to make a visit on their own before bringing their child into the process. It’s a great idea to attend a school-day Prep Preview up to two years before your student is ready to enroll. This way, parents begin to discern for themselves which area schools best meet their needs and expectations.
  • Families Considering Bringing a Sibling to Prep

    When families already have a child at Prep, enrolling a sibling is usually much easier. Even if the siblings have markedly different talents and interest, current parents are more familiar with our staff and faculty and may already know how to ask for assistance. Bringing the younger sibling to the Evening Prep Preview Open House or attending a school-day Preview are available options. Parents can review the Admission Calendar early in the fall prior to the sibling’s planned enrollment and select an event that fits well for the family schedule.
  • Families with Specific Questions or Concerns

    Sometimes parents desire an individual visit to Jackson Prep when there are extra questions or specific needs to address. This meeting can easily be arranged by contacting the Admission Office.  Individual visits are offered November thru April.  

    The best times of day to see the school when classroom activity is consistent across all grade levels is between 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Another option is between 12:45 and 2:45 p.m.
