Admissions Events Overview

Director of Enrollment Management, Cheryl Schenk Miller, welcomes you to the admissions process and walks you through some frequently asked questions about admissions events and our new video interview format.

 

Required Events

 

Admissions Preview Event The Admissions Preview Event introduces applying families to the EPS community.

Admissions Previews provide students and families with a sense of the EPS experience in a two-and-a-half-hour visit. Included in the experience are:

·       Students directly engage with EPS teachers through two EPS mini-classes

·       Parents and guardians attend an interactive Q&A panel of EPS faculty, current parents, and students

·       Both students and parents experience what makes EPS unique through a self-guided tour with “hubs” around campus that are hosted by EPS teachers, students and current parents, or a Student Ambassador-led tour

For international applicants or families applying from outside of the local area, we are offering one virtual Admissions Preview.]

Online Student Assessment: Interview and Writing Sample Our priority in our admissions process is that we get to know each student as an individual – their personalities, interests, and the unique way that they think. Through recorded video interview responses, students can express these in their own words, providing authentic insight for our admissions committee into their identities and personalities. Students will also respond to one question in writing.
Parent/Guardian Interview When students join our EPS community, their parents and guardians also become part of our community. That’s why we want to get to know you as well through a discussion-based thirty-minute  (30) parent/guardian interview where you’ll have an opportunity to share more about your student and your family and to ask us questions about EPS. We strongly encourage families to attend an EPS Admissions Preview event before they complete their interview. If possible, please ensure you register for an interview date after your Preview event date.
