Visiting Cheshire Academy


Campus Visits

 

For the 2021-22 school year, we welcome you to schedule either an on-campus tour and interview OR a Zoom interview. On campus tours are offered Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. -2:30 p.m. and require an appointment.  Zoom interviews are offered 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. All families who visit in person are welcome to wear a mask. Visitors who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask for the duration of their visit. On-campus tours are inclusive of most buildings, but not the dormitories.  All Cheshire Academy safety protocols are subject to change based on state and local regulations. Please contact the Admission Office at admission@cheshireacademy.org or 203.439.7250, to schedule your visit and/or your Zoom interview. We look forward to meeting you! 

 

Prospective families start their visit in the Admission Office. Visitor parking spaces are located in the parking lot to the right of the building. You can download a campus map here.  We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus!

How to Prepare for Your Interview

While we call it an “interview,” we think of it as more of a casual conversation. We use this time to get to know each student as an individual. We generally ask questions about the student’s interests, goals, and experiences. Following a conversation with a prospective student, each parent will also have time for questions with an Admission Officer.

Although there are no standard questions, if you would like to prepare for the interview, we encourage you to think deeply about the following topics:

Do you have a subject, hobby, or interest? If so, why do you enjoy that activity? Is there a skill or subject area that you want to get better at? Try to think about specific things you’re excited to learn. For example, instead of just getting better at history, perhaps you want to learn more about the airplanes used in World War I because you are also interested in engineering.
