Fall sessions are also scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 4, at 1 p.m.; on the Veterans Day holiday of Monday, Nov. 12, at 1 p.m.; and Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 9:30 a.m.
Visitors meet at the Turner Math and Science Building on the Oakwood Friends School campus, 22 Spackenkill Road, Poughkeepsie.
The 90-minute program begins with a brief overview of Oakwood Friends presented by Peter F. Baily, head of school, and Anna Bertucci, assistant head for academics and student life.
After a question-and-answer period, student guides take families on a tour allowing a chance to see the school when it is in session. This is an opportunity to discover the school’s campus and to meet Oakwood Friends’ students and teachers.
At the conclusion of the program, staff are available to informally discuss the admission and financial aid process.
