The work ethic that Harbor School inspires in its students has brought out the best in me.”

Open Houses

Open Houses are offered at Harbor School in the Fall and Winter. If you are an interested family and would like to learn more about our unique school, we strongly encourage attending an Open House event. It is an opportunity for you to meet our Head of School and faculty, tour the classrooms, engage with current families and students, and ask questions about our programs. Our staff will also provide a detailed admission packet for you to take home after the event.

Please note: Our Open House events for 2015-16 will be divided between our Harbor School campus (for prospects interested in grades 4 through 8) and our Carpe Diem Primary classrooms (for prospects seeking admission in Kindergarten through 3rd grade).

2015-16 Open House schedule:

For families interested in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade:
Tuesday, October 13, 6:30PM
Tuesday, November 17, 6:30 PM

If you plan to apply for admission to Harbor School's 2016-17 school year, the deadline for submission is January 31, 2016 - because it falls on a Sunday, we will accept last-minute applications as late as Monday, February 1. All applications and supporting documentation must be received at this date.
