How do you make a decision about your children’s school when buildings are closed and students are learning remotely? Corbett Prep’s admissions team is bringing parents safely and virtually to campus, using Zoom for tours that allow prospective families to see for themselves the beautiful lakeside campus, student work, classrooms – and maybe even some of the peacocks that roam the grounds.
For the past month, Corbett Prep has offered virtual visits as an alternative to coming to campus. Admissions Director Maribel Garrett walks the boardwalk, phone in hand, stopping in classrooms to point out special features and programs. A family may ask for a close-up on the Middle School aquaponics system or the instruments that fill the music room. They may want to know more about the cozy prekindergarten rooms or see the athletic facilities. Inviting parents to tour Corbett Prep through a videoconferencing app preserves the ability for parents to see the campus up close in a more personal way than they would find on a school website or social media.
During a follow-up call with the headmaster, they can ask additional questions to discover more about the brain-based educational philosophy that this private, International Baccalaureate school employs. If you have a child entering PreK3 through 8th grade, you can feel comfortable about exploring Corbett Prep from your home. Call the Corbett Prep Admissions Team for a live virtual tour at (813) 961-3087 or go to www.CorbettPrep.com to learn more.
