Open House

Interested in learning more about the Cushing experience? Attending an Open House is the perfect opportunity to find out more about our programs, meet with members of our community, and discover what it's like to be a Cushing Penguin!



January Open Houses

Open Houses are a great opportunity to meet students, faculty, and coaches and experience why our current Penguins chose Cushing.

In January, we are offering an in-person Athletics Open House on January 21 and a virtual Academic Support Open House on January 23. Details below.

If you cannot make it to one of our Open Houses, we encourage you to schedule an in-person or virtual visit to Cushing with our Admissions team. Visits and interviews are available until Friday, February 10.

Cushing Academy has always been at the forefront of Academic Support, beginning its program in 1976 and evolving into the unique and integrated support system that we offer today. Our faculty have a long and successful track record of working with students to develop self-advocacy, self-confidence, academic strategies, and life skills for college and career.

Join our virtual Open House to learn more about what makes Academic Support at Cushing so special. The one-hour program will include a panel discussion led by Jen Willis, Director of Teaching and Learning, and Micheal DeFlan, Academic Support Department Chair. In addition, there will be an opportunity to meet our support faculty and the chance to ask individual questions.
