Shadow Days

If you've already submitted the application form, students can take advantage of a full or partial shadow day on campus.  Future students will be paired with a member of the Ram Squad, our student ambassador group, and will attend classes, eat lunch in the dining hall, and hear about the West Nottingham experience directly from current students. Shadow dates are scheduled on an individual basis directly with the admission office.

Admission Open Houses

Open Houses offer parents and students the opportunity to meet current parents, students, faculty, and administrators.  During an open house, families will learn about academic and co-curricular programs at WNA, in addition to after-school activities and boarding life. Families will also have a chance to tour the school and meet members of the Rams Squad, our student ambassador group. The Admission Office will offer a number of open house events this year, so choose one that fits your schedule! Individual interviews are held at the conclusion of each open house, by request.
