Lower School Tours are open to families who are interested in applying to The Nueva Lower School in the 2017-2018 admissions season. During the tour, parents visit classrooms to observe Nueva teaching and learning in action. There is a brief overview of the curriculum and program highlights, and an opportunity to ask questions about the school and the admissions process. Please note that we have specific tour dates for parents applying to grades 2-4.

Campus Visits (Grades 2-4 Only)

Students who apply and score in the range of the candidates considered for admission move forward in the process, and are invited for a campus visit. This next step for students is an opportunity to experience a day in the life of Nueva by accompanying Nueva students through their school day and engaging in typical class activities. Lower School applicants for grades 2-4 spend the day in the grade they are currently in. Students often have their campus visits before they attend an activity session. Campus visits are scheduled between October and mid-February.

Activity Sessions (PreK-Grade 4)

Students who apply and score in the range of candidates considered for admission are also scheduled for an activity session with other applicants in the same grade. The activity session is similar to a typical Nueva classroom, where children participate in age-appropriate group activities in math, writing, and reading. We always serve snack, and children have the opportunity to have free play (PreK-1) or work collaboratively on a design challenge (grades 2-4).  Activity sessions take place December through the end of February.
