Admission Events

Thank you for spending time getting to know Mark Day School. Our admission team is eager to connect with you personally, help you navigate the process, and learn about your student and family.

We are offering a number of in-person (on campus) and virtual experiences for families to get to know Mark Day School. We are so excited for you to get a feel for our community and see our philosophy in action.

Health and safety is our top priority as we welcome visitors to campus. We ask that you and your child(ren) please wear a mask on campus. We will ask for proof of vaccination for any adults attending one of our in-person events. When you arrive, you'll complete a simple health screening questionnaire. We will be limiting the number of attendees for each date to ensure appropriate social distancing on campus.
