A Message from Whitby’s Office of Admissions

Covid-19 has temporarily disrupted our lives and we find ourselves thrust into uncharted waters. At Whitby, we pride ourselves on our ability to embrace change, so although you cannot visit in person, we are very much open for business thanks to today’s amazing technology. Long story short: we are here for you, even if you can’t be here with us!

Given the new landscape, below is a list of options you can utilize to start your admissions journey at Whitby:

Phone -- We are back in the office as of the start of school, so please call the numbers listed below (8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday). Please leave a voicemail if we do not answer and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

  • General Admissions: 203-302-9467
  • Silvia Gentile: 203-302-3902
  • Dina Lunder: 203-302-3904

Email -- Send us an email any time to one of the addresses below:

Face to Face -- While we normally recommend limited screen time for our students, we do not want to lose those personal connections that are crucial to the admissions process, so we are available to have more extensive conversations via Skype, FaceTime, Zoom or Google Hangouts. You name the platform, and we’ll be there!

Website and other resources -- We have put countless hours into developing our detailed and informative website, so please browse through it extensively to get a true flavor of Whitby’s core philosophy, guiding principles and approaches to learning. You will find limitless information about how we inspire a passion for learning and empower each child to take responsibility as an open-minded, principled citizen in a global community. 

In summary, we’re all about high tech, high touch at Whitby. So let’s engage in some meaningful conversations to overcome the physical obstacles that have temporarily been placed in our way. Our virtual doors are wide open, and we look forward to getting to know you and your families over the coming weeks. 

Warm regards,

Silvia Gentile & Dina Lunder
