Schedule A Tour

During a tour, you and your son will visit our classrooms and other facilities, meet faculty and staff, and even interact with our current students. In order to make the most of your visit, we recommend that your tour takes place during specified school hours when cadets are engaged in a variety of program areas.

Private family tours are offered Monday through Friday from 9:00am - noon and then again from 1:00pm - 3:00pm. If you are unable to attend during these times, our admissions team will be happy to set up a time that fits with your schedule. Tours last approximately one hour.
