Tours

When you visit the Mercersburg campus, you'll have the chance to take a tour of the school with a current Mercersburg student followed by a one-on-one interview with an admission officer. The walking tour will last approximately one hour.

Please note that visiting families are expected to schedule appointments several weeks in advance. Appointments are available on most weekdays during the school year. No weekend appointments are available. We encourage families to visit as early in the application process as possible, after August 1 preceding the student's entry year.

Contact the admission office to arrange your visit.

Interviews

Mercersburg requires an interview as part of the admission process. In order to best prepare for your visit, a pre-interview survey will be sent directly after your appointment is scheduled. Please note that we do not arrange dormitory overnight visits. You can make an appointment by contacting the admission office:

Admission officers travel across the United States and around the world. Interview appointments off-campus are available, but cannot fully replace the on-campus experience.

If you come to campus, you'll have a tour by a current Mercersburg student. Following the tour, you will have a one-on-one interview with an admission officer that will last approximately 30 minutes. Parents will also spend approximately 30 minutes talking with the same admission officer.

Interested in joining an athletic team or a dance or theatre group, or getting involved with one of our many clubs and organizations? Let us know ahead of time, and we'll try to arrange for you to meet with advisers and coaches of specific programs.
