Tours & Open Houses

Tours & Open Houses

Live Oak offers a variety of opportunities to get to know our school and to personally experience our learning environment. Sign ups for events in the 19-20 school year will be available September 1.


The first step in the Live Oak School admission process is a tour. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend a group tour before submitting an application. Tours are held on weekday mornings so that visitors can see our classes in action. Application packets and information about our Adjusted Tuition Program are distributed at the tour. Reservations are required. All steps in the admission process, including tours and open house reservations, are done through Ravenna-Hub at

Open Houses

Open houses offer an opportunity to learn more about Live Oak when classes are not in session. We host three different open house events, with three different purposes described below. Attendance at open houses is optional and we make room for all who wish to attend.

Teacher Panel Open House (for Adults)

This adults-only evening event provides an opportunity to learn about an aspect of our teaching practice in depth. The topic changes every year and features a panel of faculty members spanning kindergarten through middle school. This event provides insight into the expertise and intentionality of our teachers and our teaching.

Whole Family Open House

At this weekend event for students and their families, we open the doors to our classrooms so that families may take a self-guided tour of the school and to speak with Live Oak faculty, administration, and parents at their leisure.

Middle School Open House and Mini Classes

For student applicants to sixth grade and their parents, this evening event begins with dinner, followed by students and their parents experiencing a schedule of four mini-classes, balancing academics, arts, and foreign language.
