Exploration Days are an excellent opportunity to get a first-hand look at what LSMSA is all about. During these Open House events prospective students sit in on classes, while their parents hear from the school's administration. Parents and students tour the campus, hear from current LSMSA students, and have lunch in the dining hall. Exploration Days generally begin around 9:00 a.m. and conclude around 2:00 p.m. LSMSA will provide a letter for students to take to their schools confirming their attendance.
Fall 2023/Spring 2024 Exploration Days:
Monday, September 18th Friday, November 10th Monday, February 19th
Who Should Attend: We encourage students who are currently in the eighth grade or higher to attend an Exploration Day. Students who are younger than eighth grade who are traveling with their older sibling may attend; however, they should accompany their parents to all parent activities.
LSMSA, ranked one of the World’s Best Boarding Schools by Fortune magazine, is a tuition-free, public high school for high-achieving rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a nominal room and board fee to cover housing, meals, and campus activities. The LSMSA Foundation offers assistance for families in need to ensure no eligible student is denied the school’s 40-year legacy of a premium college-level living/learning experience.
“Exploration Day is an excellent opportunity to get a first-hand look at what LSMSA is all about,” said Emily Shumate, LSMSA Director of Enrollment Management & Institutional Research. “Students and their families get to see the campus and talk with the Office of Enrollment Services to learn more about why LSMSA could be a good fit for them.”
