A Seamless Transition: It isn't Too Late to Join the Purnell Community
Robin Seiler, Interim Director of Admissions

Do you remember the back-to-school commercial where the song, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year", played while the family shopped for supplies? That feeling is true for many families, including my own. I always looked forward to our supply-shopping day, getting organized and shifting into a new home routine.


A Seamless Transition: It isn't Too Late to Join the Purnell Community

This year, that sense of routine was turned upside down for families across the country. I cannot imagine the uneasiness that many of you are feeling as your children continue their home schooling apart from their friends, or are back to the classroom, albeit in a hybrid, asynchronous model. Moreover, the quality of instruction and education has declined at most schools.

If the uncertainty and instability of school this fall are causing undue stress for your daughter (and for you), it isn't too late for her to join our community of motivated learners in-person, on Purnell's safe and serene 83 acre campus. Here, we will provide her with all the tools she needs to succeed and thrive in a new environment. She will receive an individualized education and social-emotional support, become a member of our small, close-knit community, have access to many leadership opportunities and more.

Each year, our head of school chooses a community theme and this year, it is "Lift Up". Let us "Lift Up" your daughter and help assure her intellectual curiosity and emotional confidence to become a lifelong learner with great successes beyond Purnell.

Our faculty and student life team can welcome a new student at any time during the year - even this semester! Your daughter could begin as soon as her admission application is complete. When she does enroll, she will be given a big sister and an advisor, and parents receive a parent mentor - all meant to welcome your family to Purnell.

Our goal is to provide a seamless transition for you and your daughter no matter when she joins Purnell. We provide support to help you complete your application and keep you updated on the progress of her file. If needed, we contact your daughter's sending school to ensure forms are submitted correctly and in a timely manner. We understand that time is of the essence when enrolling your daughter in a new school. You have our commitment that we will consolidate this process to ensure that your daughter promptly becomes a Purnell Griffin.

We respect your investment and dedication to your daughter's education when selecting Purnell for your daughter. Therefore, we are determined to provide you a streamlined admission process to allow your daughter to begin her Purnell experience as positively and smoothly as possible. Our team is here and ready to answer any questions you may have about life at Purnell.
