.On the Day of Your Visit
All college visits occur in the College Counseling Center in Quigley Hall of Sanford's Upper School campus. Visiting college reps can park in any space behind Stephen May Hall or in front of Pirnie Hall or Kidder Hall. For a campus map, click here
. Please note the following instructions:
All visitors to Sanford MUST sign in at the Upper School Office on the main floor of Stephen May Hall. Visitors may access Stephen May from the east side entrance of the building. To get to the door, while facing Stephen May Hall from the parking lot, use the stairway to your right past the gazebo. Report to the Upper School office using the door to your left at the top of the stairs to sign in and receive a visitor's key card. Please remember that masks are still required in all school buildings.
After signing in, college reps should come to Quigley Hall, entering through the main entrance which faces the quad. The College Counseling Center is through the glass doors just past the lockers on the left.
College visits will be attended by one of the college counseling staff. 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.
At the conclusion of the visit, college reps should return to Stephen May Hall to sign out and return the visitor's key card.
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.
In addition to offering in-person visits, Sanford also offers colleges the opportunity to visit with students remotely through Zoom or other platforms. Colleges are expected to provide their own hosting service, and college representatives can sign up for a time through SCOIR.
