Upcoming Events

Whether on campus or learning from a distance, Waynflete teachers encourage students to be independent learners— to investigate topics themselves, generate questions, collaborate, form and support their own opinions, and learn to discuss conflicting views.

To see if this kind of education is right for your child, the Admission Office offers numerous events such as Coffees with the Head of School, conversations with Division Directors to "Discover Waynflete", and evening Admission Receptions that allow families to hear from Waynflete faculty and students.

Admission events begin in October and run through the spring. We strongly encourage you to attend as many events as you can. Each opportunity helps you learn more about the different facets of our program.

Please know that all events are subject to change this year as our community continues to respond to COVID-19. 

If you have any questions or wish to learn more about our event offerings, please contact Molly Martineau at admission@waynflete.org or 207.274.5224.
