5. Virtual Parent Interview

Parent meetings allow us to get to know your family and child better and to answer questions you have about Brookwood and our program. You can schedule your parent meeting here. This year, we are offering the option of meeting in person or via Zoom. Please note that we require masks for in-person meetings.

Admissions assessments will take place in person for all applicants this year.  You will be contacted by the admissions office to schedule your child’s assessments after your child’s application is received.
