Visiting Our School

As part of the Admissions process, we require that all families visit Northern Light School.  A prime opportunity to learn about what makes Northern Light School special and unique is at our Open House.  If you are not able to attend an Open House, you can sign up for a group Tour and Morning Coffee Q&A session.   

Tour and Morning Coffee Q&A 

Tour and Morning Coffee Q&A sessions are your opportunity to participate in a tour led by the Admissions Director, join us for Morning Circle (the way we begin the day in community), visit a classroom, and meet some teachers to answer all of your burning questions. Tours will be held Wednesday Mornings starting in November 2019 through May 2020 from 8:45 am to 9:30 am.  Students and Parents are welcome. For more information, please email
