Admissions Welcome

A Message from The Director of Admissions:
Linsly opened the doors to our 204th academic year on Thursday, August 17, welcoming 125 new students from 10 states and 18 countries to our campus. While many of our new students were nervous to start a new journey in a new school, and for many in a new country, they have found a place where they can feel at home. It is a place where they are surrounded by teachers, coaches, advisors, and mentors who are here to help them find their way and adjust to Life at Linsly.

At our first school assembly meeting of the year, Linsly's Headmaster announced our school theme for the year, "If it doesn't challenge you, It won't change you." Our new students will certainly be challenged in many ways at Linsly, but they will be changed forever because of the experiences they will have during their time here.

As late summer inevitably turns to fall, our Admissions Office will be busy preparing to help the next group of new students take the first steps in their Linsly journey.

If you are interested in exploring Linsly as an option for your child, I encourage you to attend our first Experience Linsly Day of the year, Sunday, November 5 at 1:00 p.m. During this event you will learn about our school, meet teachers, talk to students, and discover for yourself why Linsly is such a special community.

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.
Mr. R.J. Zitzelsberger III
Director of Admissions
