Family Meetings

Our Admissions Team is available throughout the week to connect over the phone or in video meetings to share more information about our programs, learn about your daughter’s journey, and answer your questions. We look forward to the opportunity to “meet” you!

The Griffin Experience

After receiving your application, we invite you to engage with the Purnell Community. We can connect you with teachers and coaches, students, parents, and alumnae as we aim to give you the full Griffin experience, even from afar. Our interviews are conducted via video conferences, designed to be conversations between families and our Admissions Committee to determine if Purnell is a match for your daughter.
