.On the Day of Your Visit
Sanford School is a limited access campus, meaning visitors must register with the Upper School Office in Stephen May Hall
to procure a key card to access school buildings. Please access Stephen May Hall through any door, press the doorbell to be "buzzed in", and report to Carlene Spencer, Upper School Administrative Assistant, on the 2nd floor to receive your key card. (If you enter Stephen May from the North or East entrances, you will enter on the 2nd floor; if you enter from the West or South entrances, you enter on the 1st floor).
The College Counseling Office is located in Quigley Hall, the historic farmhouse situated at the heart of the Upper School campus. Enter Quigley Hall through the main door facing the quad, past the senior lockers on the left, and enter the College Counseling Center through the double glass doors on your left.
To park, follow the main, one-way drive as it winds to the left through campus to the back of Stephen May Hall. There are parking lots immediately behind Stephen May and in front of Kidder Hall and Pirnie Hall.
Please note that all traffic through Sanford School is one-way. Thus, if you turn too early or pass by Stephen May Hall, you will need to leave campus through the exit on Withers Way and return through the main entrance via Lancaster Pike. As our campus hosts many buildings and students as young as 4 years old, our one-way traffic is designed to keep all of our students' safety as the top priority.
A college counselor will attend your meeting with students. Though Sanford promotes every school's visit to campus and welcomes 11th and 12th-grade students to rep visit meetings, on occasion we find that no students choose to attend. In that case, we still enjoy the opportunity for one on one conversations with the visiting representative and one or both of the college counselors.
