Exploring Drew

Welcome to Drew!

I hope as you explore our website you gain a real appreciation for Drew's vibrant learning community. This is a school that values your unique talents, skills, and interests.

As an alumna of Drew, I take a great deal of pride in guiding families through the admissions process and highlighting the transformational experience and outstanding education at Drew that I experienced.

Each year we welcome a group of young, eager, students like you who are bursting with promise. Over the course of four years, you will build confidence, self-esteem, and maturity as you engage in a process of intellectual discovery. We know and believe in teenagers, and we harness that knowledge to challenge you to fulfill your individual potential and become the best version of yourself.

I am looking forward to partnering with you and sharing with you how, at Drew, you'll find your voice just like I did.
