Boarding School Admissions Q&A

Dawson's High School Planning Team coordinates on-campus visits with select boarding school admissions representatives. Each visit provides an intimate setting for small group information panels and admissions process prep sessions with our eighth-grade class and interested seventh-graders. In addition, we interview each representative to find out more about the boarding school application process and their schools.
