GET TO KNOW GREENHILLS

In place of an all-day visit to the Greenhills campus, we’re offering students and families a variety of opportunities to learn about what life as a Gryphon looks and feels like.

Information Sessions

Whether you’re just starting your journey with Greenhills or you’ve known about us for awhile, an information session is a great way to deepen your knowledge and understanding of what makes our school unique. You’ll hear from members of our leadership team, students, and faculty, and have a chance to join break out sessions led by our teachers that speak to your student(s)’ interests.

See our upcoming Information Sessions

Fridays in the Forum

Among the most distinctive and unique features of the Greenhills campus are our forums. Each grade level has its own communal space where students gather before school, between classes, and after the day has ended for moments of connection, collaboration, and fun. We welcome you to join us in a virtual version of our beloved forum spaces. Designed specifically with prospective students in mind, these informal yet informative gatherings on Zoom will be led by current Greenhills students. Parents/caregivers, while this specific program is for kids, we hope that you will attend one or more of our other offerings. Please note the separate sessions for prospective middle school and upper school students.

Virtual Interviews

As part of our application process, we require all prospective students to complete an interview. This is a chance for us to get to know you a bit better, and for you to learn more about our school! We anticipate these virtual interviews will occupy approximately a 45 to 60-minute time block. After a brief introduction, the student will speak to a member of the Admission team for 20-30 minutes, after which parents/caregivers are welcome to join for discussion and questions. It is our goal to provide as much opportunity for conversation as a visit to our office would offer. To schedule your interview, please fill out our inquiry form. If you’ve already filled out an inquiry form and just need to schedule an interview, please click here or email admission@greenhillsschool.org. Please note that interviews are available for 2021-2022 applicants only.
