Visiting Campus



Discover the difference

There are two exciting ways for us to show you around our beautiful campus, give you tours of the schools, and introduce you to the learning environment that will shape your child’s future. Discovery Days and Shadow Visits are held on regular school days, providing our guests with a genuine look at the student experience.

Schedule your visit today! Contact the Admission Office at 410-531-7347 or admission@glenelg.org.
Discovery Days

While primarily for parents, children are welcome to attend.

The day begins promptly at 9:00 a.m., with check-in, refreshments, and a welcome from our Head of School, Admission Director, and current students.

Visitors will then be divided into touring groups and organized by division – Little Dragons, Lower, Middle, and Upper. School administrators lead the Little Dragon and Lower School groups, while students conduct Middle and Upper School tours. Initial tours usually conclude around 10:30 a.m., but you are welcome to stay for a tour of another school division.

Shadow Visits

Prospective students entering grades 5 – 12 can experience a full day at Glenelg Country School prior to submitting an application. Your child will spend the day with a current student, attending classes and experiencing what it would be like to attend our school.

Shadow visits begin in early October and continue throughout the year. They are for the student only but parents are welcome to stop in at the beginning or the end of the day.
