Lion Tours & Lion for a Day

Lion Tours are a great way for families to get a glimpse into what life is really like at The City School. They create an opportunity for families to acquire the necessary information to make informed decisions about the best place for their child’s academic, social-emotional and spiritual development.  Register for a Lion Tour below.

Lion for a Day allows 6th -11th grade students the opportunity to spend a full day attending classes, get to know our teachers, eat lunch with new friends, and get a feel for the beautiful community we’ve built here. Lion for a Day requires parent permission and current school information so that we can provide a letter to your school for the day’s absence.  We would love to show you all that The City School has to offer.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we are not offering Lion for a Day appointments, but are hoping to reinstitute this visit in fall ’22. In the meantime, you may still visit with us by registering for an open house, (click the open house tab to the right), taking a virtual tour the link is below or schedule a Lion Tour at one of our campus locations just select a campus to register.  We hope to see you soon.
