Visiting Campus

Discover the difference

Due to COVID-19 and our campus reopening plan, we've altered the way we welcome prospective families and share information about our program. In addition to our offerings below, we hope that the videos posted on this page will help you discover the GCS difference.

Virtual Discovery Days

These Zoom events include two sessions. The first is a general welcome by our Head of School and Director of Admission. A few students from our Upper School will briefly reflect on their GCS experience. Guests will then select the second session based on their interest: Little Dragons, Lower School, Middle School, or Upper School.

During the second session, Division Heads and staff will provide an overview of their academic and extracurricular programs. Parent representatives will speak about the benefits of a GCS education, and guests will have the opportunity to ask questions. 

Upcoming Discovery Days:
  • Thursday, January 7, 2021 at 9 am
  • Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 7 pm
  • Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 9 am
  • Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 7 pm
  • Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at 9 am
To register, please submit an inquiry form so that we can provide you with log-in access to a personalized page set up for your child. You will find a checklist outlining the steps of the admission process, including a link to the Discovery Day registration. You may also call our office at 410-531-7347 or email to register. 

If you have already inquired and have an account, please log in to your parent portal and refer to your child’s checklist to register for a Discovery Day.

Family Tours

Although we are not able to welcome visitors to our school while students are attending, a campus tour may be scheduled by contacting the Admission Office. Please contact the Admission Office at 410-531-7347 or to arrange a tour at your convenience. 

Virtual Meet & Greet

This year, in lieu of hosting traditional shadow visits, we are offering 30-minute virtual “Meet and Greet” opportunities specifically designed for candidates to meet and talk with 2-3 of our students, the Director of Admission, and a division representative. After submitting an inquiry, you will be given access to an admission portal page where you can register for one of these sessions. 

Note: These are for candidates to grades 6-11 only.
