Join Us at an Open House

Kirby hosts two Open Houses each school year; one in the fall semester and one in the spring. Our faculty, students, and parents come together to welcome you into our caring community while offering prospective families a vivid picture of the outstanding education your student will receive at Kirby.

Open Houses for the 2019-2020 school year are October 26, 2019 and January 25, 2020.

Experience the inside story — our school climate, how we prepare students for college, the balance of classes and extracurricular activities, and the level of attention and commitment given to every student.

Get to know our faculty and their passion for teaching, and learn more about their creativity and depth of knowledge in their fields. Communicate your needs and preferences to the Kirby support team. Our Deans of Students, Academic Counselors, College Counselor, and Director of Learning Services will be on hand to answer all your questions.


Visit Classrooms during Preview Day

This event for prospective parents offers a close-up look at our classrooms and how we engage students. We:

  • Choose from a menu of classes
  • Observe inspirational relationships being forged

Follow a Current Student during a Shadow Day

A shadow day is an excellent way to experience a day at Kirby and to see if our school is a good fit for your student. We will pair your student with a host who has similar interests. They will spend the day together, attending classes, hanging out with other Kirby students, and enjoying 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 for 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, email, or use the Contact Us link below.
