Admissions Welcome

A Message from The Director of Admissions:
After a busy and productive academic year, summer has arrived at Linsly.

In May, Linsly held our 203rd Commencement ceremony, graduating eighty six seniors from the Class of 2017. One hundred percent of these Linsly graduates will go on to attend more than fifty-two different colleges and universitities in seventeen different states across the country. Among the impressive list of colleges where the Class of 2017 will matriculate in the fall are Columbia University, Princeton University, University of California Berkeley, Emory University, Carnegie Mellon, University of Michigan and Penn State just to name a few. We are very proud of our graduates and know that they will go on to do amazing things in college and beyond.

Summer is an exciting time in the Admissions Office as well. New families continue to visit our campus - some for the very first time -while many families are completing the final steps of the admissions process and enrolling as new students for next fall. We also are busy preparing for new student orientation which will take place in August to help transition our newly enrolled families into the Linsly community. For our newly enrolled families, we encourage them to visit our start of school website for the most recent updates and information pertaining to the start of school

For those of you still considering your next step in the Linsly admissions process, our office is open throughout the summer months to help answer any questions you may have.
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 or call 304-233-1436.
