An important aspect of our Admissions process is the personal conversation with Elgin Academy's Admissions staff. Our Admissions staff led by Bonita Gost, Director of Admissions and Marketing, is available for one-on-one question and answer sessions every day. Making the decision of where to send your child to school is an important one. We know you'll have questions and the Admissions staff is happy to answer them. Register online for your one-on-one conversation today.
We are so excited to open up our beautiful campus to onsite tours again! Tours are available Mondays and Wednesdays 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm.
Given the safety protocols that are still in place, campus tours will be limited in scope but will still allow guests to visit facilities on our campus. All visitors (including any children over the age of 2) must wear a mask throughout the tour.
Please join us and find out how taking learning personally works at Elgin Academy. Meet with the Director of Admissions to have your individual questions answered. We look forward to seeing you on campus.
An article in Quintessential Barrington magazine captures the essence of the transformative nature of an Elgin Academy education.
“Families who are willing to invest in their child’s education know that an Elgin Academy education develops the whole child. As a “process school” the focus is on the whole student and his or her interests, not just on academics... Students are encouraged to explore interests outside of school including volunteering and activism, which helps them find their voice. Students are encouraged to think outside the box and to take responsibility for their education.”
