The Grauer School is hosting semi-private Discover Grauer Tours on Thursday, January 9th, January 23rd and February 6th for prospective families. The hour-long tours start at 9:15 a.m. and are limited to a maximum of eight families per tour.

“Discover Grauer Tours are an excellent way to learn about The Grauer School’s programs and view classroom dynamics in action,” states Elizabeth Braymen, Director of Admissions.  “We encourage families who would like to get an inside glimpse into the school to sign-up for these free, semi-private tours. We also offer private tours to families who have completed Part 1 of our application and submitted the application fee.”

Families will meet faculty, students, and parents while touring The Grauer School’s visual and performing art spaces, science labs, robotics workshop, athletic field, and more. The tour includes an overview of The Grauer School’s challenging academics, integral humanitarian service, and exciting global expedition programs.

The Grauer School is a grades 6-12 college preparatory school that is the regional leader in the small schools movement. The Grauer School focuses on college preparatory rigor balanced with expeditionary learning and Socratic teaching. As a small school by design, with approximately 150 students total, The Grauer School emphasizes relationship-based teaching that stems from its small class sizes with a student to teacher ratio of 6 to 1.

“The best way to understand the power of relationship-driven education, a core feature at The Grauer School, is to witness it firsthand,” Braymen adds.  “Once you step onto campus, and especially after you see a class in action, you’ll understand why the seniors in our graduating class were accepted to 89% of the colleges to which they applied.”
