ADMISSIONS EVENTS

 

The admissions process at Sheridan mirrors the feel of our community: welcoming, warm, and inclusive. We offer many different types of events so you can get to know our community in the ways that work best for your family. We’d love to meet you at one — or all — of them! 

Ravenna manages scheduling for our admissions events. Please begin by creating a Ravenna account and choosing Sheridan School as a school you are exploring. If you have any questions, please contact Director of Admissions Karen O’Connor-Floman.

Information Sessions

Information Sessions are a great introduction to our curriculum and our philosophy. Join faculty, administration, parents, and students as we share information about what makes Sheridan unique. Each session will conclude with a Q&A session.

Our December and January sessions will include our signature parent and student panel discussions. If you have already attended an information session, you can join us for only that portion if you wish.
