Students in dance class waving

We look forward to welcoming you to Kirby School.

There are many ways to learn about our program, however, visiting campus is the most advantageous for prospective parents and students.

Observing classrooms in action, exploring hallways covered with student artwork, and meeting our students and staff is the most effective way to understand our school climate and the level of attention we give every student.

We offer a variety of admissions events to help you envision the education your student will experience at Kirby School. 

Open house

Join us at one of our two annual Open House events.

These are an outstanding opportunity for prospective parents and students to see and learn about Kirby School.

Our next Open House is on January 25, 2020 at 1pm. 

Our faculty, students, and parents come together to welcome prospective families into our caring community and offer a vivid picture of the outstanding education your student will receive at Kirby.

Personal Tour

Visit campus when it's convenient for you.

A tour with our Admissions team provides prospective parents and students a chance to ask specific questions about Kirby School in a one-on-one environment. We'll:

  • Go into classrooms to see teachers and students in action
  • Meet faculty and staff who are here to help your student both thrive and excel
  • Talk with team members about sports, clubs and other areas of interest

Contact our Admissions Director, Emily Lamoureux, by emailing or calling 831-423-0658 x 202 to schedule. 

shadow day

Spend a Day at Kirby School.

A shadow day is an excellent way to experience a day at Kirby and to see if our school is a good fit for your student. We will pair your child with a current student who has similar interests. They will spend the day together, attend classes, hang out with other Kirby students, and enjoy lunch with friends in the Kirby Café.

How it works:

  • Our preferred shadow day is Monday because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be arranged for any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen by our executive chef.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call 831-423-0658 × 202 or email
