4.18 Fifth Grade Parents Night

Thursday, April 18, 7:00 pm
5th Grade Parents Night
5/6 Building

Please attend Fifth Grade Parents’ Night for an overview of the Seventh Grade application process for independent schools, special admission schools in Philadelphia, and suburban schools. During the discussion, we will emphasize that this process is a parent-driven one, and that it is important to consider all schools for Seventh Grade. An application timeline will be provided.

Discussion Topics

  • How Miquon supports students & families through the application & school visit process
  • Making a good school match for your Miquon graduate
  • What parents can do to support their child and his/her peers


Please RSVP to Andrea Myers by emailing andream@miquon.org.


In preparation for the evening, please read the Fifth Grade Parent Guide and come with questions about the process.

Also, take a moment to review the Association of Delaware Valley Independent Schools (ADVIS) website, which has a listing of spring open houses at area independent schools. We strongly encourage parents to attend these early open houses without children.
