Middle School Experience: Open House Optional
We welcome all families interested in RPCS for the Middle School to visit campus for one of two optional Open Houses (Experience Days) during the Fall to meet our faculty, staff, coaches, and students!
Thursday, October 21st, 8:00am – 9:00am
Friday, November 19th, 8:00am – 9:00am
Visit Day + Parent Information Session: Required
Student: Once an application to RPCS is received, you will receive an email with a link to register for a Visit Day. All applicants to grades 6-8 are required to attend a Student Visit Day where they will attend classes with an RPCS student hostess, meet other students, teachers, the Middle School Division Head and additional members of our community. Applicants will also be interviewed by a member of the Middle School Admissions Committee on the Visit Day.
What to wear: Comfortable attire. If you have a school uniform, you can wear it — many visitors do.
What to bring: You do not need to bring any school materials with you. Bring any medications/inhalers that may be needed over course of your visit. We will also let the nurse know of medical concerns.
Lunch: Snack and lunch are provided. If you feel more comfortable bringing your own lunch, you may — but our Dining Hall has amazing food!
Parents and Guardians: Parents and guardians will be interviewed the morning of their daughters’ Visit Day by a member of the RPCS administrative team, participate in a student and faculty-led tour of the school, and join a group discussion with our Head of School, Caroline Blatti, and Middle School Head, Verna Mayo. If you are unable to join us the day your daughter is visiting, please contact the Admissions Office to schedule another time to visit campus for your interview: firstname.lastname@example.org

Teacher Roundtables via Zoom Optional
Join us for a unique opportunity to meet with faculty members from the Middle School School in a casual, conversational setting. The perfect setting to have a deeper dive into the RPCS curriculum, philosophy and teaching styles of our Upper School faculty. Dates TBD.
Students applying for grades 6-8 are required to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). RPCS has ISEE testing on Saturday, November 20, 2021 or Saturday, January 8, 2022 from 9 a.m. to 12 pm. To register for the ISEE testing, click here.
If the RPCS testing dates are inconvenient for you, you may sign up for testing at another school, a Prometric center, or ISEE at Home. Please be sure to add RPCS’s ISEE school code 210180 for us to receive the scores.
RPCS will need to receive ISEE scores on or before January 15, 2022.

Please complete after November 13, 2021 but before January 15, 2022.
Submit an Authorization Form to your daughter’s current school for the release of school records/transcripts. The forms are to be sent directly to RPCS via mail or email (email@example.com) from her current school.
Please submit after December 1, 2021 but before January 15, 2022.
