Every parent remembers their child’s first day of school. It’s just one of those life moments where you take that big step, hoping for the best—and in this case, hoping you’ve done your best to prepare your kiddo for everything that awaits them through those doors. School is where our children spend most of their waking hours, and the kind of education they receive varies greatly, depending on where they go. In a city like Baltimore, there are so many decisions to be made about where to send our children, and what kind of educational experience we want for them. Thankfully, the folks at the Calvert School are happy to help make that decision making process a bit less overwhelming. Thursday, May 8th, they’ll be offering a workshop about the admission process for independent schools. As experts in the field, they’ll offer helpful tools and ideas to get parents started on the right foot.

The day begins with “A Checklist for Independent School Admission.” This will offer an overview of the admission process—particularly useful for parents for whom this is an entirely new experience. After that, Nicole Webster (Director of Admission & Enrollment) will speak on “The Right School Fit: Principles, Practices, & Programs.” After all, no two schools are just alike, and parents should be armed with the right questions to make sure that the school they’re interested will truly serve their child’s needs. And of course there will also be a workshop on “Financing an Independent School Education”—since very few of us have the means to simply not worry about that part at all. By demystifying the financial aid process, Director of Finance & Operations Joe McGraw can help parents figure out how to realistically afford the education they want for their child; an extraordinarily valuable talk, since we all know that the right education is priceless.

The Calvert School’s Independent School Admission Workshop takes place Thursday, May 8, 2014, from 9:30 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. It will be held at the Calvert School, located at 4300 North Charles Street in Baltimore. For more information, visit
