Cannon School hosts admissions events

CONCORD – Cannon School will host an admission open house on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 10 a.m. and a school-day open house on Friday, Nov. 10 from 9 a.m. to noon for families seeking to explore educational opportunities. The event will take place on Cannon’s 65-acre campus at 5801 Poplar Tent Road in Concord.

For the Nov. 4 date, visiting families with students in junior kindergarten through grade 12 will have the opportunity to tour the campus, learn more about the admission process and hear from teachers, students and leaders about what learning looks like in the life of a Cannon student. Interested families may register to attend at www.cannonschool.org/visitcannon.

Cannon is also offering a school-day open house on Nov. 10 for parents and prospective students in grades first through 12. This will begin with a breakfast in the school dining hall, followed by a robust morning program filled with opportunities to observe classes, participate in activities, engage with our leaders and faculty and ask parents and students questions about what it is like to be a member of the Cannon community. Space is limited, so register at www.cannonschool.org/visitcannon today.

For parents unable to attend, Cannon also offers “Walk-in Wednesdays” to accommodate busy schedules. The Admission Office provides campus tours each Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., no appointment necessary. Interested parents may also contact the Admission Office at 704-721-7199 to arrange an individual tour.
