VIRTUAL   SCHOOL   TOURS   AND    INFO   SESSIONS

​​We are happy to share what makes our school so special! Crestmont requires attendance at an Admissions event or a phone call with an Admissions team member before your application can be considered. This year, Crestmont is holding virtual Q&As, information sessions, and virtual live tours so prospective families can learn about our program, hear from teachers and staff, and have questions answered. In-person events will resume at a later date.
