Open House

Open Houses at the Priory are wonderful opportunities for prospective families to experience Priory firsthand. The Priory hosts two Open Houses every fall, two for families interested in learning about our middle school and two for families interested in learning about our upper school. Families interested in attending an Open House are warmly invited to reserve their seats through their Ravenna account beginning immediately after the Labor Day holiday in September.

We begin our Open House program in the Performing Arts Center where attendees will hear from members of our administration, current students, and alumni about our academics, student life, and extracurricular opportunities. After this formal introduction, current students and parents will lead attendees through two 20-minute classes.
Open Houses conclude in Schilling Square where attendees have an opportunity to speak with teachers from our different academic departments. At the Upper School Open House, we invite current Priory students, representing our many clubs and teams, to assist with questions about our student community. We offer a short tour of our dormitories following the day’s formal program for families interested in learning more about our boarding program.

*Please kindly note that Open Houses have a formal start time and require advance reservations. In order to sign up for an Open House, click the blue button on the top right that says Create a Ravenna Account. Once a Ravenna account has been created, select Woodside Priory from the Regional Schools list and click Explore. Although attendance at an Open House is optional, additional information about registering is listed under the Open House application step.

Campus Visitor Program

Our Campus Visitors Program gives you the opportunity to spend the day at Priory with a Student Ambassador so that you have a better idea of what a typical school day is like.

Campus Visitor Days are scheduled on most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays beginning in mid-September and ending on January 10th, 2020. On Mondays and Wednesdays, they go from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm, and on Fridays, they go from 9:30 am till 2:25 pm.  Campus Visitors will get a tour of the campus and visit two classes as well as break and lunch. 

To sign up for a Campus Visitor Day, click on the blue button in the upper right that says, "Create a Ravenna Account." Once you complete the Application Form (just biographical info) and pay the Application Fee, you will be able to sign up for a Campus Visitor Day. Registration for available days open up as the Fall and Winter go on, typically about 2-4 weeks before the date. 

Note that except for unusual circumstances, we don’t do individual tours during the school year, so the Campus Visitors Program and Open Houses are the best ways to visit us.
