Important Dates and Event Registration

When making the decision for your son’s next school, it’s important to make the decision for the right reasons – you want to make sure the environment, the school philosophy, the offerings, and the day-to-day way of life of a school is right for your son and for your family.  That’s why the Admission Department highly suggests you take the time to visit, whether it’s through a private tour, student visit day, or in-person or online Q&A session!

Are you considering Devon Prep for your son and looking for more information about who we are and what makes us unique? Sign up for one of our online sessions to learn more about us!

These are not your standard PowerPoint presentations – we field any and all questions from attendees, from scholarship and financial aid to curriculum to school philosophy and the application process itself.

Each Q&A session starts at 7PM and sessions tend to run about an hour (longer if we have more questions, which is a good thing!)

Student and Parent Visit Days

Student Visit Days:
The best way for your son to see if Devon Prep is the right place for him is to spend a full school day visiting.  It’s important he can see himself here, and a visit day allows him to see first-hand the students’ relationships with their teachers and each other, to get a feel for the flow of the day, to see how the faculty interacts with the students, and even enjoy a free lunch and see what the food is like!

Click here for the visit day sign-up form and additional visit day details!

Parent Visit Days:
We talk a lot about small class sizes and student-teacher relationships, and the best way to get a feel for that is to see it for yourself.  Attend first and second periods with a student host of your own, and meet with the Admission Department during third period to get any and all questions answered!  Come see how Devon Prep can help your son become the best version of himself.
