Admission

From the Director of Admission

Cristin Talley Director of Admission

The Healdsburg School is a community of bright, inquisitive students, nurturing, collaborative families, and a dedicated, experienced faculty and administration. Each and every day we drive to fulfill our mission of developing confident, courageous, compassionate leaders by challenging students to engage relationships and ideas with rigor and integrity.

What brought you to inquire about The Healdsburg School? Do you wish for your child to be part of an educational setting where s/he can truly thrive? Do you want your child to develop the attributes of an inquirer, a communicator, a thinker, a risk-taker? At its core, The Healdsburg School is a place where children discover and share their individual gifts, invest in caring relationships, and experience the excitement of academic challenges. Our learning environment centers around the child with small classes and specialist teachers; character development and social responsibility are actively promoted and expected as the norm. The Healdsburg School actively seeks students who are interested in our intellectually inspiring and socially inclusive school experience. Our goal in the Admission process is to welcome you and inform you about THS as we learn about your child and family. One of the best ways to begin this journey is to visit The Healdsburg School campus. I invite you to come see our students and faculty in action by scheduling a personal tour. I look forward to receiving your web inquiry or phone call. Let’s begin a dialogue about how The Healdsburg School community of learners would benefit your child and family. Relationships are the cornerstone of our community, and I hope to begin one with you. Sincerely, Cristin Talley Director of Admission 707.433.4847

We wanted a challenging curriculum with a low teacher-to-student ratio where we felt our child could grow at his own pace and get the attention he would not receive in the public arena. We also enjoy having a true Art, Music, and PE program. The IB program is also integral to the learning process at THS, and we enjoy how it grows and develops.
