A Message from The Director of Admissions:
It's hard to believe that another grading period has flown by and we are nearing spring break at Linsly!

This is one of our busiest and most exciting times of the year, as our Fine Arts Department continues the tradition of the annual Extravaganza variety show which will take place on Friday, March 2nd. This year marks the 80th Annual Linsly Extravaganza and promises to be an amazing show that involves every student and faculty member in our school commuity!

We are also very busy in our Admisisons Office helping prospective families complete the final steps in the Admissions Process.

There is still time for prospective families interested in learning more about Linsly, to viist our school and learn more about the Linsly philosophy, financial aid and scholarship opportunities.

Linsly will host an Upper School Preview Night for families and students in grades 9-11 on Wednesday, April 4 from 7-9 PM. Online registration is now open for this event!

I look forward to helping you take the next step in helping your child blossom into his or her full potential at Linsly. To contact our admissions office or arrange a visit, please email admit@linsly.org or call 304-233-1436.
