School Tours and Information Sessions

We will be happy to show you what makes this school so great! Crestmont requires attendance at a tour or information session before an application is submitted.  During a tour, you will visit all of the classes and see teaching and learning in action.  You may also attend a weekend information session, where you will have more opportunity to talk to teachers and staff directly.  NOTE:  If you are looking for a spot for your child for the current school year, please contact the Admissions Chair directly at admissions@creatmontschool.org.
