Midland On The (Virtual) Road

October 25, 2018 P&D

Due to COVID-19, we will not be on the road this year, as all secondary school fairs have been cancelled. Instead, we are excited to host remote open houses and meet-and-greets with our community, including current students, parents, faculty, campus pets, and other members of the Midland community. Please stay tuned to this page for more information on remote events, and don’t forget to join our mailing list to be the first to know when new events are scheduled.

Being ready for college means being ready for life.

At Midland School, students live their education.  With 2,860 acres as a home base, we blend experiential study and work to teach the value of a lifetime of learning, self-reliance, leadership, and a responsibility to community.  From Midland, students can go anywhere – Ivy League or gap year, city college or across the globe.

For more information contact the Admissions Office at (805) 688-5114 or admissions@midland-school.org.
