Choosing the right school for your family is a big decision. And it's one that should be made with as much helpful information as possible. If you are thinking about applying to Severn this year or are just interested in learning more about our community, add these important dates to your calendar.

Severn School Open Houses

There’s a difference between knowing about a school and really getting to know a school. You can learn about Severn through our website and recommendations from friends and family, but the best way to really get to know us is to visit.

Our admissions open houses offer a chance for you and your family to become acquainted with our classrooms and campus, meet our teachers, learn information about financial assistance, and ask any other questions you may have about Severn. Most importantly, you’ll get a sense of Severn School culture and begin to picture yourself as part of our community.

We want every family to learn as much about Severn as possible before making their choice. Part of our mission is to know and value each and every member of our community. And even if you’re only thinking about applying to Severn, we count you as part of that community. Attending an open house is a great way to introduce yourselves to Severn and start the conversation about the admission process.
