Middle School

Open House

Families of prospective Middle School students are invited to our Fall Open House on Sunday, October 27, 2019. The program will begin in the Horn Theatre at 12:30 p.m.

This is your chance to:

  • Speak with students, teachers, and administrators.
  • Learn about the Middle School's academic, art, and athletic offerings.
  • Take a student-led tour of classrooms, studios, and athletic facilities
  • Discover why our students, faculty, and parents say, "There's No Place Like McDonogh."

No preregistration is required for this event. From the Lamborn Road entrance to campus, parking is available in the Woods Lot adjacent to the Naylor Building.

Shadow Day Visits

To experience McDonogh first-hand, prospective students can spend the day visiting academic classes and eating lunch with a Middle School guide. Prospective students are hosted in their current grade, with the exception of rising fifth graders who shadow with the fifth grade so that they, too, can experience a Middle School day.

Shadow Day visits begin in the Admissions Office at 8:20 a.m. and typically end by 2:30 p.m. These visits are non-evaluative and are an optional piece of the application process. Shadow days are offered from early-October until mid-January.

If your child is spending the day with us, we will set up his or her admissions interview during the visit day. It is important that we get to know your child and give him or her the opportunity to ask questions regarding McDonogh School.

After completing the application form, you may sign up online or call 443-544-7025 to reserve a place for a Shadow Day visit. Please know that dates fill up quickly, so signing up early is recommended. We will do our best to accommodate your request for a date.
