Each admissions season, we host special events that allow our prospective families to visit campus and experience life at Dunham. We invite you to take a student-led tour at an open house to learn more about our school from the student perspective or attend our Homecoming Tiger Tailgate party to meet other Dunham families and catch the Tiger spirit as we cheer our football team on to victory. Exclusive pre-show parties and complimentary tickets to one of our musicals will give you the opportunity see our fine arts program in action. At our Head of School coffee you'll have the chance to meet our administration, get your questions answered, and learn more about the heart of our school. These events and others are designed to allow you to see all that Dunham has to offer.
2020 Update: While it is our desire to host you on campus this fall, we are evaluating each of our regularly scheduled admissions and will make decisions and announcements on a case-by-case basis as Louisiana moves through Phases II and III of reopening.
Date: Friday, October 9
Time: 8:30 - 10 a.m. (drive-by Play Day Kit pick-up)
Intended for: Families interested in PK3, PK4 or Kindergarten
You and your little ones are invited to FALL IN LOVE WITH DUNHAM as we enjoy our PreK/K Play Day a little differently this year! After registering for our Virtual Play Day, you will be assigned a time to pick up your Play Day Kit, which will include pre-packaged materials, login information for the virtual event, and instructions for each activity so you can follow along at home. During your pick-up time, you are welcome to park and let your child take a photo in front of our fall display. We can't wait to see your smiling faces and wave to you as we socially distance. Please note spaces are limited and advance registration is required for this event.
Normally, prospective students entering grades 6-12 are invited to become Tigers for a day, getting to know our students, our teachers, and the many opportunities available at Dunham. Visiting students follow a regular school day schedule and are our guests for lunch. Unfortunately, at present, we are not offering student shadow days due to Covid-19 restrictions. We look forward to hosting student guests as soon as it is safe for us to do so.
While we are monitoring our larger admissions events and doing some things differently this year, we want you to experience a virtual visit by hearing from our Tigers and their families about our school and our programs!
