Admissions Events

Thank you for your interest in joining us on campus. Due to COVID-19, Vistamar’s campus remains closed. This admissions season we had a robust series of virtual events to help families and students learn more about our school community. Please look through the "Past Virtual Events" section below to review recordings of some of our virtual offerings. There you can find topic specific sessions on All Things Admissions, Visual & Performing Arts, VistaMath & Athletics, and more!

Vistamar is still accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. Students applying during our Rolling Admissions phase are considered on a case-by-case basis. To receive updates about other events and helpful information, please submit an inquiry to join our distribution list, or reach out to admissions@vistamarschool.org to schedule a call. 

We look forward to getting to know you better online. 

Virtual Information Sessions & Events

Soulful Celebration
We are pleased to welcome you to this year's Virtual Soulful Celebration on Thursday, February 25, 2021 from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm. Soulful Celebration is an event that was conceived and created by Black parents to celebrate Black history and culture, and has become a beloved annual event for the whole Vistamar community. This year students chose the theme of The Harlem Renaissance and The Golden Age to highlight this intellectual revival of African American art, literature, and culture. The students are curating the show to explore the key figures and cultural movements of the time - you don’t want to miss it!  
 
You can expect an evening of wonderful music from students in Vistamar's music department and beyond, original poetry and more! To RSVP for the event, click here.
