Open House, Shadow Day and Tour: Welcome to the Kirby community.

Join us at an upcoming Open House

Kirby Open Houses paint a vivid picture of the education your student will receive at Kirby. We begin with a meet and greet with Kirby families and faculty, followed by a more formal presentation, a Q & A session with current students, a “Campus Passport Tour,” and a closing reception.

Prospective students mingle with current students to experience the Kirby culture — collaborative, creative, and caring. Parents mingle to discover the inside story — school climate, college prep, the balance of classes and extracurriculars, and the level of attention and commitment given to every student. Faculty can help your family explore needs, preferences and opportunities. Our Academic Dean, School Counselor, Director of Learning Services, and College Counselor will also be available for questions. Click here for more information about our Financial Aid program.

Shadow Day

A Shadow Day is an excellent way to experience a day at Kirby School and to see if it is a good fit for your student. We will pair your student with a student host who has similar interests and together they will experience a “day in the life” at Kirby. They will attend classes together, hang out with other Kirby students, and enjoy lunch with friends in the renowned Kirby Café.

How it works:

  • Monday is our preferred shadow day because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be scheduled any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen by our executive chef, Tracy Landry.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call (831) 423-0658 ×202 or use the link below.

Campus Tours

Let us show you around our campus with a personal tour. It is an ideal way to see our classrooms and to experience Kirby students and faculty in action. Our Director of Admissions, Amy Hemmert, is available by appointment. She will answer your questions and show you all that Kirby has to offer.
