Admissions Welcome

A Message from The Director of Admissions:
After a well-deserved spring break, students and teachers are back on campus ready for a fresh start to the final grading period of the year! Spring is a wonderful time on Linsly’s campus. Trees are beginning to bud, daffodils are popping through the ground, and the sights and sounds of spring sports and students practicing for the annual declamation poetry contest fill the air.
Spring is an exciting time in the Admissions Office as well. New families continue to visit our campus - some for the very first time -while other families are completing the final steps of the admissions process and enrolling as new students for next fall.
The Admissions Office will be hosting several events in the spring for families who have completed the admissions process including New Student Day on Sunday, May 21 from 1:00-4:00 PM. This day is designed to provide parents of newly enrolled students with all of the information they need to be ready to start the school year successfully. New families look for more details about this event soon! For those families who have not completed the admissions process, or for those who are looking at Linsly for the very first time, we encourage you to continue working with our admissions office so that you too can be part of this very informative New Student Day on Sunday, May 21st.
As spring is beginning to bloom on campus, I look forward to helping you take the first steps in helping your child blossom into his or her full potential at Linsly. To contact our admissions office or arrange a visit, please email or call 304-233-1436.
Mr. R.J. Zitzelsberger III

Meet Kaitlyn.

Meet Kaitlyn, class of 2009. She is a graduate of Wheeling Jesuit University, and currently in her second year at West Virginia University College of Law.  If you have ever asked the question, "Why Linsly?", read Kaitlyn's inspiring story.

Why Linsly? As Kaitlyn explains, "Linsly is more than just a school...When your child comes to Linsly, it's not for four years, five years, or even eight years - it's for a lifetime."
