Challenging girls to become women of 
intellect, character, innovation, action, and faith

Plan Your Visit

Since we are unable to host prospective families on campus this fall, we encourage you to explore our website, including our Virtual Visit page, before scheduling your interview. Interviews for applicants and at least one parent or guardian will begin on October 1 and will take place on Zoom. You should allow approximately 45 minutes for your Zoom appointment. Please call the Admission Office at (617) 244-4246 to schedule your interview.

In addition to the interview and website, there are a number of other opportunities to Get to Know Newton during the admissions process. At this time all events will be virtual.

  • Each fall, the school hosts three Prospective Parent Coffees. During these informal morning events, members of the Admission Office and current parents will answer questions and help prospective parents get to know the school.
  • Each year, Admission hosts an Open House the first Sunday of November so that prospective students and parents/guardians may come to know our dynamic community and learn about our balanced program of academics, arts, athletics, and service.
  • In January, Curriculum Night will give families the opportunity to hear from faculty and students about our academic and extracurricular program. More information about this event will be available later this fall.
“What makes NCDS special is how close knit the community is. Everybody is able to rely on their classmates and teachers for help and guidance, which is easy due to the small class size.”Molly Ropelewski ’19
