The Office of Admission is open for questions.

Interviews

Interviews are available to high school juniors by appointment.  Please call 781-283-2270 to schedule. At least one full business day's notice is required (so that your interview knows to report to work), but we encourage you to call as early as possible. Interviews book fast!

Class Visits
  • Available for high school juniors and seniors.
  • See the calendar above as classes are not offered on all weekdays.
  • Classes most weekdays at 9:50 am, 11:10 am, 1:30 pm, and 2:50 pm (on Wednesday afternoons, classes are held at 2:15 pm and 3:35 pm rather than 1:30pm and 2:50pm).
  • Classes last 70 minutes.
  • Class availability changes daily. Please come to the Office of Admission to see the list of classes accepting visitors on that day and to pick up a class visit ticket. Students need a minimum of 30 minutes to select a class and reserve a seat. (Tip: if you're planning to go on the 10:00 tour and take an 11:10 class, that means arriving in our office no later than 9:30. If you're planning to also attend the 9:00 information session, you need to select your class at 8:30 a.m.)

Lunch Visits

Available to high school juniors and seniors by appointment Monday through Friday at 12:30 p.m.  Please call 781-283-2270 to schedule. Whenever possible, we request that the student herself call so that we can talk about her academic and extracurricular interests and find just the right host!

With at least one week's notice we can match you with a student who shares some of your interests, and we request a minimum of three days' notice for a lunch appointment. If you are unable to schedule an appointment in advance we do occasionally have late cancellations. Please inquire in person before 11:00 a.m.

Information Sessions

Information sessions are available on a walk-in basis most weekdays at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in April. Information sessions are not offered in March or May. Reservations are not accepted but we strongly encourage students to register their visit date in advance. See calendar above for exact availability. When the office is open on Saturdays in April, there is one information session daily at 10:00 a.m. only

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to check in. Information session groups depart for the presentation room 5 minutes before the hour. While we try our best, we cannot always accommodate latecomers, so plan ahead!

Overnight Visits

Overnight visits are available to accepted students and Early Evaluation "likely" students only by appointment March 29 through April 28.  Offered Monday through Thursday; see calendar above for exact availability.

Call 781-283-2270 to schedule. We request that the student herself call as we'll have lots of questions about your academic and extracurricular interests - we want to match you with a host who shares your interests! The earlier you call, the more likely it is that we can find just the right host for you. **Please note that we require three days notice to book an overnight appointment at this time.
