The following Spark sessions are your opportunity to participate in a short class with one of our talented faculty members and – in some cases – our current students. After a sampler class, go on a student-led tour of our campus and be sure to tell your tour guide if there’s something you’d like to see that isn’t in our sampler schedule.

All Spark sessions are optional, go to one or several - it's up to you! They all take place either at the Senior or Middle School on the Richmond Road campus. We'll point you in the right direction when you arrive.
