SCHEDULE A VISIT
Whether you are coming from away or have lived in Portland, Maine all your life, you need to experience Waynflete for yourself. We invite families to visit campus to get a better sense of the informal moments that make Waynflete special. Through tours, student visits, and a short parent interview, we hope you will come away with a greater understanding of our school. We will work with your family to make your visit as convenient and enjoyable as possible.
|Fill out our inquiry form and the Admission Office will be in touch to schedule a parent tour or student visit.
While families may request a tour at any time of year, student visit days begin in October for Middle and Upper School applicants and November for Lower School applicants.
Parents of students in Early Childhood, Kindergarten, and Grade 1 programs typically tour the school first then schedule a visit for their child in January. Students interested in grade 2 will spend the morning (8:15-10:45 a.m.) in our Lower School. Students interested in grades 3-5 and 9-11 will spend the full day on campus, and the visit begins at 8:00 a.m.
Prospective students interested in grades 6-8 will spend a half-day on campus attending classes, exploring campus, and learning more about the Middle School program directly from our Middle School Director, teachers, and current students. These visit days start at 8:00 a.m. and finish at 12:15 p.m. Lunch is included.
Lunch is provided for visitors spending the full day on campus. Lower School visitors should bring clothing appropriate for outdoor play (boots, raincoat, snow pants, hats and mittens), as students participate in recess in all kinds of weather. Lower School visitors should also bring a mid-morning snack, a pair of sneakers for physical education class, and a silent reading book. Upper School visitors may also wish to bring a book in case of any quiet time in classes they are visiting. Sneakers are also encouraged in case students visit a physical education class. Waynflete does not have a student dress code, so be comfortable.
