Meet the Admissions Office

Fall, 2020
Dear Prospective Parents,
Our dedicated faculty and staff, committed parent body, and enthusiastic students welcome your interest in the John Thomas Dye Community. As we begin our 91st school year, we take pride in the tradition of excellence that began in 1929 in the home of Cathryn and John Dye. We have educated thousands of young people: nurturing them, challenging them, and inspiring them. The JTD experience encompasses not just academic excellence, but also character education, a responsibility for one's self, and a respect for one's community. As our Mission Statement explains, the John Thomas Dye School "encourages our students to reach their highest individual potential intellectually, artistically, and physically; it nurtures their emotional, moral, and social development and prepares them to meet the challenges of a diverse and competitive world." 

We understand the importance of the journey you are about to take. We believe, as you get to know us through our admissions process, you will see and appreciate all that the John Thomas Dye School has to offer your son or daughter. 

Thank you for your interest in the John Thomas Dye School, and we look forward to working with you.

Even though our campus is closed due to the Covid 19 situation, the admissions office is open to respond to any questions you might have about the 2020-2021 admissions season. Please feel free to contact either Judy Hirsch, Director of Admissions,  or Olivia Mora, Associate Director of Admissions,
