Upcoming Events

To help you choose the school that is right for your child, the Admission Office organizes numerous events such as Coffees with the Head of School, mornings to "Discover Waynflete" by visiting classes, and evening Admission Receptions that allow families interested in Waynflete to hear from 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.

If you have any questions or wish to learn more about our event offerings, please contact Fiona Haslett at admissionoffice@waynflete.org or 207.274.5224.
