NYC Admissions Reception

We had yet another successful admissions reception last night, this time in New York City at the home of Tommy Robertshaw (Su’12) and his family. It was an incredibly impressive turn out with over 60 prospective students, families, and alumni in attendance! Thank you to everyone who came to the reception! An even bigger thank you to the Robertshaw family for hosting such a wonderful event–and for finding the space in their home for all the guests!

We will be writing blogs at the end of each day, complete with pictures, videos, and tweets of our travels!

When we visit the secondary schools, we will make a presentation to the student body and meet with some staff members so they get a better idea of The Island School program. This week, we will be visiting the following schools: Rocky Hill School (East Greenwich, RI), the Wheeler School (Providence, RI), Middlebury Union High School (Middlebury, VT), Hanover High School (Hanover, NH), Yarmouth High School (Yarmouth, ME), Freeport High School (Freeport, ME) and North Yarmouth Academy (Yarmouth, ME).
