Frequently Asked Questions

What Does The Tour Consist Of?

When your child attends an 8th grade tour at Sea, he or she arrives at 7:30 a.m. to visit our many specialized homerooms, including the Institute for Scientific Research, Robotics, Band, Chorus, Publications, and more. Next, groups sit in on a live WSJS broadcast, attend classes in various disciplines, have lunch, and tour our fields and new Viking Student Center. They are dismissed from the front door at 11:30 a.m., and each student is given a letter to excuse their absence at their current school. 

My Child Isn't In The 8th Grade Can I Still Book A Tour?

We are only offering appointments to current 8th graders Other students are encouraged to attend our traditional Open House event in October.
