December 13, 2018 
The last week before winter break always brings with it lots of joy and energy, from our wind ensemble/orchestra concert, holiday family style dinner, to holiday gingerbread parties (check out the photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages), athletic contests and an annual a cappella concert from our own A Cappelicans.  We did not want to miss an opportunity, however, to show you some of the highlights of the fall term as well as share a new podcast about our Guided Research Project in molecular biology with Loomis faculty member Dr. Erica Gerace. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season, and a very happy new year!

This week we took a trip to the Pearse Hub for Innovation (PHI) in the new Scanlan Campus Center to meet up with Head of School Sheila Culbert as she taught students how to make beaded jewelry just in time for the holidays.

Admission Application Deadline: January 15, 2019

The holiday break is a great time to submit your application if you haven't done so already. Both the SAO and the Gateway applications are accepted by Loomis and we have no preference for one over the other. We also do not require a graded paper for submission. When we recieve your application, we will send you a link to the LC Admission Portal along with your username and password where you will be able to track your application requirements as they are processed by our office. Please allow some time for processing over the holiday season!
