Tours & Interviews
Thank you for your interest in Loomis Chaffee. We are not offering tours or interviews at this time. If you have submitted your application and fee for the fall of 2023, please see further information below on other options for you to share information about yourself with the Admission Committee.
Individual Campus Tours and Interviews
Individual campus tours and interviews are offered on weekdays through the end of January for applicants considering admission for the fall of 2023. During this approximately two-hour visit you will have a personalized campus tour with our student tour guides followed by an interview with an admission officer or faculty member. This option is only offered from September through January and slots are limited.
Please Note: Loomis Chaffee is a mask-optional campus. If you are planning a trip to campus but are not feeling well, have COVID-19, or recently have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please delay your visit.
Other Virtual Options
If you are unable to schedule an interview with us, we encourage you to submit an interview to Loomis Chaffee via InitialView. InitialView offers live, unscripted, interactive recorded interviews online that you can send to multiple schools. It is not an interview specifically for Loomis Chaffee, but we are InitialView partners. InitialView is an excellent option for applicants unable to schedule an interview directly with Loomis Chaffee who want to share more about themselves with the Admission Committee.
Another option for those unable to schedule an interview with us but who want to share more information about themselves is to submit a video essay. This is a short response to a question created by Loomis that applicants can access via their Loomis Chaffee application portal. The video essay is free to submit, only available to applicants, and only for those who have not already completed or scheduled an interview. See your portal for more information!
