The Island School admissions and alumni teams are on the road again! Sharon Jarboe, Cam Powel, and Taylor Hoffman are hitting the pavement this week, traveling throughout New England visiting sending schools, holding admissions receptions, and visiting Island School alumni enrolled in colleges throughout the area. The week on the road began in Wellesley with an incredible admissions reception hosted by the Baker family (Shawn, Beth, Erin S'10, Julia S'13). It was one of our best attended receptions in history with over 70 people (including 25 prospective students!) gathered in the Bakers' beautiful home to hear about The Island School or catch up with some familiar faces. A huge thank you to Shawn and Beth and the rest of their family for hosting such an amazing event!
Still buzzing with energy from Sunday night, we headed north for lunch at Phillps Exeter Academy where we caught up with some of our more recent alumni and some interested students. We were so thankful for Dr. Sydnee Goddard (parent F'08) who is a great faculty member resource not only for Exeter students interested in applying to The Island School, but also for the students who return to Exeter after their IS experience! She was nice enough to host our pizza party in her classroom on Monday afternoon.
We then continued onward to arrive in Burlington, VT in time to get dinner with all of our alumni at University of Vermont.
Our next stop is Middlebury, VT where we will host a reception at the Robinson's home and hope to catch up with a bunch of our IS alumni who currently attend Middlebury College!
