Virtual Open House Overview

While we would much prefer introducing you to Prairie with a guided tour across our beautiful campus – stopping in the Giving Garden so you can see the promise of spring pushing through the soil in the form of flowers and vegetables, or visiting the glassblowing studio so you can witness the kind of innovation that is routine in a place committed to creativity – drastic times, as they say, call for drastic measures. 

This spring, those measures mean collaborating, troubleshooting, and thinking outside the box as it pertains to coming together and highlighting the kinds of things your child will accomplish –  and the kind of person they will become – here at Prairie. Until we are able to host you in-person, we look forward to hosting you in cyberspace. Each Zoom session will last approximately 45 minutes, and provide you with the information you need before applying.

While this spring’s “normal” has challenged us all in innumerable and previously unimaginable ways, our community has used it is an opportunity to grow closer even while apart. You see, at Prairie, “normal” will always be a relentless commitment to knowing, valuing, supporting, and challenging your child. If you’re interested in joining that kind of community this fall, the first step is registering for a Virtual Open House.
