The Hun School - Princeton, NJ


The 2021 Admission Season, not unlike The Hun School of Princeton, is in a class of its own. 

The pandemic was challenging in many ways and highly-disruptive to independent school admissions -- in a good way. Learn how to make the new normal work for you.

Loomis Chaffee - Windsor, CT


An interview is required as part of the application process at Loomis. This year, interviews will only be offered virtually for those considering admission for the 2022–23 academic year. All prospective students for next year who have submitted an inquiry form through our website will receive an email from the Admission Office with instructions for scheduling their interview.

Campus Tours

Loomis Chaffee will offer both virtual and on-campus tours for families during the 2021–22 school year. Please choose the best option for you dependent upon your individual circumstances and location. There is no advantage in our admissions process whether a student does an on-campus or virtual tour, and all virtual tours are given live by our tour guides who are available to answer your questions.

Virtual Events

We have a robust slate of virtual events to help you learn more about Loomis Chaffee throughout the upcoming months, from webinars with academic departments and student life to our Discover Loomis virtual open houses. Check our website frequently for events scheduled throughout the fall as well as recordings of previous webinars you might have missed.
