An admissions open house was once the primary way that families learned about a school, but today, it's easy to find most information without leaving your home. While online research is valuable to start, it can't replace a face-to-face introduction. Don’t forgo your chance for an authentic first impression, schedule a campus tour! Our staff, faculty, and students can't wait to share their Severn stories with you.
Feel the Energy of Our Community
Severn School is driven by our commitment to helping students develop the skills and habits of mind that the world needs from leaders today. We work toward this vision through our shared values as a community — it's an energy that you'll feel as soon as you step through our doors. That feeling of belonging is something that can’t be fully captured online. Come meet us, you’ll see.
Talk to Our Admissions Team
With decades of experience, our admissions team is the Severn School welcome wagon. They can answer your questions (even if you’re not sure which ones to ask!), share a bit of Severn history, and explain how our values shape the way we learn, teach, and interact as a community. These are the folks that will guide you through the application process. The sooner you meet them, the sooner they will become a valuable resource and support for your family.
