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.

For families considering admission for the 2022-2023 school year or beyond, we will resume our on-campus Discovery Days in the fall of 2021. These morning events start promptly at 9:00 AM and begin with a welcome introduction from our Head of School, an opportunity to hear from some of our older students, and a brief overview of the admission process from our Director of Admission and Financial Aid. Divisional tours will follow, providing the opportunity to observe briefly in classrooms and engage with current parents, teachers, and administrators. Dates for our 2021-2022 Discovery Days are noted below. Registrations can be made through the online parent portal for those who have inquired or by contacting the Office of Admission at 410-531-7346 or

Given the success of our evening Virtual Discovery Days during the 2020-2021 school year, we plan to schedule a few of those in addition to the morning on-campus events.

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.
