It was a crisp, colorful autumn day for the Forman Admission Open House! Prospective families gathered on October 10, 2016 for a lively and informative visit.
Head of School Adam K. Man welcomed everyone and talked about the caring community that can be felt at Forman as soon as one steps onto campus. Of the dedicated and highly trained faculty, he said: “They're going to work with you to help you achieve what you want as a learner...this is a community where people accept you for you and want nothing more than to help you achieve your dreams.”
An in-depth discussion took place during a student-administrator question and answer panel, and prospective parents as well as students asked many questions. Emma Forrester ’17 spoke about her experiences with the college counseling process. “From writing my essay to go to college to my list of choices, the College Counseling office is there every step of the way. My college application process was actually a breeze,” she said. It was noted that Forman continues to uphold its 100% college placement rate. One parent asked a student who had previously been at another prep school to compare the advisory groups. “At my old school, I didn't even know who was in my advisory. I know everyone in my advisory now. Mr. K. [Assistant Head of School for Operations and Enrollment Mike Kowalchick] brings donuts. You have advisory lunch and you get to know your peers in advisory and your advisor. There's a better sense of community,” Luke Willson ’17 explained.
There was plenty to do: families explored the grounds with a campus tour and classroom visits, and connected with current families during a coffee mingle. After getting to know administrators, students, parents, and teachers, guests were able to see the Forman Difference firsthand.
“I didn’t know much about Forman going in, but I was really impressed today,” a prospective parent said.
