As the COVID pandemic ebbs, we are delighted that we can be more accommodating and show our campus to visitors. In the interest of the health of our community, we do ask for proof that you have been vaccinated. We can tour the campus and provide answers to your questions, but we do not spend time in classrooms as we get so many requests that it would mean frequent interruption of classes.
Visits – Individual or Families
We warmly welcome visitors and want to provide a meaningful look at what Quaker Education looks like. We enjoy showing visitors our campus and talking about our vibrant school community. Let us know when you will be in Monteverde and the reason for your visit, and we will try to schedule you for a half-hour tour.
You must book at least one day in advance so that a staff member is ready to welcome you. Please contact us directly to book. We welcome donations to help with our administration costs.
Quaker Meetings for Worship
Everyone is welcome to join us in silent worship on Wednesday mornings (9:00-9:45) and Sunday mornings (10:30-11:30, preceded by singing from 10-10:30). No bookings are needed, but please do let us know if you’d like to have some time to talk about the school after meeting. Click here for more information about the meetings or follow this link to the Monteverde Friends Meeting. Our school is under the care of the meeting, and they share the Meeting Room with us.
If the above options do not work for you, please contact us to discuss other arrangements. We would love to see you and show off our beautiful school!
Visits – Groups
If you are coming to Monteverde with a group and would like to visit the school, please contact us at least a month ahead of time. We would be happy to arrange a tour of the school and discuss other ways that you can connect with our school and students while you are here.
With prior arrangements, groups can participate in the life of the school in myriad ways. If your group has particular skills or talents, they could be shared in an assembly. Examples include a singing group giving a small concert, university students leading conflict resolution activities, a theater group leading improvisation games, and an instrumental music group highlighting their different instruments. Some groups also have arranged one-to-one work with students in the classroom, reading, writing, and co-creating art.
Even if your group is only available for a short visit, there are other ways you can help our school, such as bringing school supplies or contributing to our financial aid program.
