Oakwood Friends School will host its fall information session at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 18.
Visitors meet at the Turner Math and Science Building, Oakwood Friends School campus, 22 Spackenkill Road, Poughkeepsie.
The 1.5-hour program begins with an informal meet and greet with Head of School Peter F. Baily, and Assistant Head for Academics and Student Life Anna Bertucci and faculty.
After an introduction by Bertucci, visitors and current students will participate in two abbreviated classes, drawing from robotics and ethics for the October event.
Student guides take families on a tour to see school in session. This is an opportunity to walk the school’s campus, and meet Oakwood Friends’ students and teachers.
Admissions staff will be available to informally discuss the admission and financial aid process. The session promises a more interactive event, showing rather than telling prospective students and families about Oakwood Friends’ teaching methods, activities and difference.
Oakwood Friends School, founded in 1796, is an independent, coeducational college preparatory day and boarding school serving grades six to 12. Guided by Quaker values, Oakwood Friends educates and strengthens young people for lives of conscience, compassion and accomplishment. It fosters a community of students and staff in an atmosphere of mutual respect and enrichment, sensitive to the world and its needs.
The October event will be the sole fall session. Information sessions are only offered twice a year. Those interested in attending are asked to register in advance. Call 845-462-4200, ext. 245.
