What can we help you find?

Welcome to Pelican Nation!

Congratulations on your Acceptance!

Traditionally, we offer accepted students and their families the opportunity to preview life at Loomis through our on-campus Pelican Preview Days. This year, in light of the circumstances surrounding the global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to cancel these programs and instead invite you to experience Loomis through the many virtual resources we have available to you. The content on this page will be updated throughout the upcoming weeks, so check back often, and in the meantime, check out the videos and podcasts below!
