"Touring" boarding schools in the fall
I am guessing that boarding schools will not allow any visitors in the fall. Luckily, several boarding schools are now offering virtual open houses, information sessions, and tours. However, this is not the same as seeing a school in person. Do you think schools will allow prospective students to at least drive through campuses? We are considering visiting a few schools so that we can at least see the campuses and check out the nearby towns. Is this allowed or are most schools closed to cars too?29 replies
