You probably already know about Dwight-Englewood, the prestigious private school that offers a liberal arts-intensive college prep program to more than 900 students on a college-like 45-acre campus. The school is stellar for sure, with a challenging academic program and top-notch faculty along with a variety of clubs, athletics, and arts programs (5th graders famously create and perform their own opera every year.) Not surprisingly, it's also pretty pricey. But whether you're actually considering the school or just want your kids to experience life on campus for a day, you'll want to take advantage of one of the free workshops D-E has coming up, taught by the same top instructors the school employs to teach its student body.
On March 4, parents and high schoolers can participate in a college test prep workshop to navigate the differences between the SAT and the ACT, while kids in 8th grade and up can join a musical theater workshop for a couple of hours. On April 22, younger kids (grades 3-5) can participate in a painting workshop and 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders can join a STEM challenge focused on engineering and problem-solving, headed up by the school's director of technology. Of course, we've already got the answer to at least one equation: Free workshops + kids who'll eventually be applying for college = No brainer.
