How long is the tour?

Please allow up to one hour for the tour. Please allow extra time to sign in.

Where do I check-in for the tour?

When you arrive at McAlpine, ring the doorbell (to the right of the main doors) and let the office know you are here for a tour. Once you are buzzed in, proceed to the Main Office. All adults must bring a photo ID and sign in with the Lobby Guard system in the front office. Please allow time to sign in.

Can my child join the tour?

Prospective students and younger siblings are welcome to join our tours. As tours are scheduled during the school day, we ask that all attendees be respectful of McAlpine’s learning environment.

How do I confirm your spot on a tour?
