Meet the Tour Guides

This year, over 200 students have volunteered to be Tour Guides for Loomis Chaffee – almost half of all students in grades 10-12 – including eight Head Tour Guides, traditionally one of the most highly respected leadership positions on campus. This number is a huge testament to the love our Pelicans have for their school and to their enthusiasm for sharing it with prospective families. While your visit will not include all 200+ tour guides, the following searchable database is available to you to learn more about our tour guides, their interests, and why they love Pelican Nation. Enjoy!
