3 Schedule a virtual tour with a current student and an optional in-person tour on campus
We have developed a virtual tour program to help prospective families explore our beautiful campus and get to know the community. Prospective students and their parents will experience a walk through Millbrook’s campus via HD-video footage with a current Millbrook student on Zoom. The virtual tour and interview will be scheduled at different times, ideally within 48 hours of each other.
Millbrook is also pleased to offer the option for a socially-distanced campus tour for families who have completed the virtual interview and scheduled or completed a virtual tour. A campus tour is not required for the application process but can serve as an important complement to your virtual exploration process.
