    On the morning of your daughter’s Visiting Day, parents may choose to spend part of the morning with us and attend a friendly “meet and greet” information coffee with the Head of School, the Division Head, and the Director of Admissions. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and learn more about an RPCS education and our community. You also have a tour of the school, with special attention given to the division your daughter is visiting.The morning session for MS/US parents begins at 8:00 am and ends at 10:00 am.  The morning session for LS begins at 8:30 am and ends at 10:00 am.

  • How long is a tour of the School? How do I schedule one?

    Tours vary in length, depending upon your daughter’s interests and the facilities you are interested in visiting. On average, a tour of Roland Park is 30 minutes, start to finish, but can be customized to suit your needs and questions. If you have registered for one of our Visiting Days, your daughter will receive a tour at that time. If you join us for the morning program, you have the option of touring the school then. All other tours may be scheduled through the Admissions office.
