Lower School Student Visit

PreK & Kindergarten

Applicants for PreKindergarten and Kindergarten will spend part of a morning at Agnes Irwin. Visits are planned as a small group experience, designed to provide an informative and comfortable introduction to our school and our teachers, while engaging the children in a variety of group and one-on-one activities. We will provide parents with detailed feedback from teachers within a few days of the visit. Please contact Kitty McQuaid to schedule a student visit.

Grades 1-4

Applicants for grades 1-4 will spend a full day at Agnes Irwin in order to get a feel for the campus, meet the teachers and students, and experience a typical day at AIS. Please contact Kitty McQuaid to schedule a visit day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to apply before my child’s visit?

Yes, you do need to submit your application before the student visit. The application will help us get to know your daughter better to plan for the visit and make the best possible match with a student hostess. 

What should my child wear for the Visit Day?

The girls here are active and busy. Children should wear comfortable school clothing (no jeans or t-shirts, please), including sneakers and outerwear appropriate to the weather. 

What time should I arrive at AIS? Where do I go?

Applicants to PreKindergarten and Kindergarten should arrive five minutes prior to the group visit start times that will be shared when you schedule your appointment. We will meet in the Lower School Lobby.

 Applicants to grades 1-4 should arrive by 8:15 a.m. Parents should enter campus by the stone pillars and park in the reserved Admission parking spaces facing the athletics field. An admission director will meet you in the Lower School Lobby.

Does my child need to bring anything with her?

Children don’t need to bring anything with them. For full day visitors, snack and lunch are provided. If your daughter prefers to bring her own lunch on her visit day, that is fine.

Please alert us to any food allergies prior to your daughter’s visit so that we may discuss treatments, if needed, and plan accordingly with our school nurse.
