Lorien Wood hosts a series of Open Houses and school tours during the school year for interested families. Come and learn more about the academic program and educational model at Lorien Wood!

School Tours

For Spring 2018, we have three scheduled Admissions events.  All three will begin at 8:50 am, and will allow visitors to observe our all-school Morning Opening, followed by a tour of the school. There will be a brief Admissions and curriculum presentation after the tour, with an opportunity to ask questions. These tours will be held on:

Tuesday, April 17 • Wednesday, April 25 • Thursday, May 3

If you are interested in attending one of these tours, please email us at to let us know!

While tours do not provide the opportunity to speak individually with faculty (as would an Open House), they do include an observation of our all-school Opening with which students begin each school day, and a chance to sit in a classroom to observe. Afterwards, a member of the Admissions Committee will lead parents through the school and answer questions.

NOTE: All tours begin in the Lorien Wood school lobby. The Lorien Wood school entrance is on left side of building, the two sets of double doors tucked in the center left of the building, across from the playing fields.

To schedule a tour, please email or call the school office at 703-854-1640. However, please note that we will not be offering school tours until after the November Open House which we strongly encourage all interested parents to attend! See you then.

Open Houses

Open Houses are the best way to gain a deeper understanding of Lorien Wood as a school and community. Visitors have the opportunity to visit classrooms, meet faculty, and participate in an information session with our Head of School. Open Houses are designed for parents, though older students would also be welcome to attend with their parents.

Our three Open Houses for the 2017-18 school year:
  • Monday, November 13, 2017 at 7pm
  • Monday, January 8, 2018 at 7pm
    WEATHER POSTPONEMENT: NEW DATE is Tuesday, January 16 at 7pm
  • Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 9am
    **WEATHER NOTE: In the event of an FCPS 2 hour delay, the Open House will begin at 10am.
    At this Open House, you can observe Morning Opening, and also visit classes.

Please also read the information above about school tours and email or call the school office at 703-854-1640 to learn more about Lorien Wood. We looking forward to speaking with you!
