Admissions

Visiting Baldwin

We are a school that celebrates the value of both work and play so that even as we prepare girls for their bright futures, we also appreciate childhood and adolescence as special moments which should not be rushed.
 
Our Admissions Team is eager to learn more about your daughter. Though our campus is open, due to safety concerns in light of COVID-19 we are unable to welcome visitors to campus. We have transitioned our fall open houses, tours, and student visit days into virtual events. We encourage you to check back on this page for additional information and registration links.
