Parents’ Weekend

The Island School would like to invite you (family members only please) to come and share in your child’s semester experience and see what life on the island is really like! You may spend time with us on Eleuthera and events are planned at The Island School throughout the entire weekend. Semester and Summer Term Parents’ Weekend schedules vary slightly, so please contact the appropriate person listed below for more details on the weekend.

For Fall and Spring semesters, events are planned at The Island School from Wednesday at 5 PM through Friday dinner. Saturday is a free day with your child and they do not have to be back on campus until 10 PM.

Eleuthera is a unique island that is fairly remote. There is no “Avis” or “Marriott”! It can be difficult to plan a trip to Eleuthera so please work with our designated team members to help plan your trip.

For Semester Program Parents:

Please respond to this invitation with Anne Maxey, Chris Maxey’s mother. She volunteers to help with Parents Weekend logistics. The Maxeys have had a house at Cotton Bay on Eleuthera for almost thirty years and Anne is well prepared to share airline knowledge and arrange your housing and car rental. RSVP to Anne Maxey at (561) 797.0523 and leave a message or email
