Looking Forward to the 2014 Admission Season
July 23, 2014
The summer is in full swing here in the admission office and there hasn’t been much quiet time. The campus is bustling with campers (some who sport familiar Bullis faces) and there is construction happening in seemingly every nook and cranny to get things spit-spot for September. While I miss the hustle and bustle of the school year, this time of year allows us to prepare for the upcoming admission season and there is a lot to do!
We plan to officially launch the application for the 2015-2016 school year by September 5, 2014. Please do not submit an application for next year before that or it will get caught up in remaining applications for the upcoming school year.
Come fall we will also be launching a brand new website! Our new website will, of course, have a new Admissions page! We have worked very hard on this over the past few months and we are so excited about it. Depending on what division you are applying to you there will be a unique landing page and very clear and concise application checkpoints. I think you’ll find navigating this new site will be very easy and there will be many fun things for you to explore.
As we work to set our calendar for the fall, I can already give you some dates to look forward to: General tours for all divisions will begin the week of September 9 and interviews will begin the first week of October. Shadow dates will begin on Fridays later in the fall. Any students who choose to shadow must be “active applicants” which means they must have already submitted their application and have already been interviewed or have scheduled an interview. Remember all visits need appointments, so please call the office at 301-983-5724 to reserve a time. We will begin setting up appointments the first week of September.
Before we know it our Open House will be upon us, so mark your calendars for Sunday, October 19. Welcome program is at 1:00 and tours will begin at 1:30.
As you can see, there is a lot to look forward to and it’s only July! Until then, we’ll put the finishing touches on admissions for the 2014-2015 school year and look forward to September. We can’t wait for it all to begin again!
