High School Information Fair

Calling all Linton Hall School 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade families! On Tuesday, October 6 from 7:00 to 8:30, we will be hosting a High School Information Fair, right here at Linton Hall School! The event will feature five of the private schools our students most often attend. They include PVI, Pope John Paul the Great, Highland School, Wakefield School, and Seton School. Please join us, with your students, to learn about the programs offered by these schools. Each school will have a representative to answer your questions and provide you with helpful information. We hope this evening will be informative and helpful in finding just the right High School for your child(ren)! Please email Mrs. Finkel at mfinkel@lintonhall.edu if you think you may attend. Hope to see you there!
