Bennett Day School Open Houses are meant for families with students who are interested in grades 6-12, and are also open to parents of younger students looking ahead to middle school and high school. Parents/guardians and students are both encouraged to join.

Our next Open House will be hosted in Fall 2020.

During our Virtual Open House, you’ll have the opportunity to hear about our progressive, project-based program directly from our Director of Upper School, learn more about our admissions process, then ask questions during a live Q&A.

If you are the parent/guardian of a student in grades PreK-5, consider attending a Virtual Information Session.

We are now accepting applications for grades PreK-10 for the 2020-21 school year.
