Prospective families walk the grounds from a distance using the latest 3D technology
With the St. Paul’s School campus closed to visitors, the Admission Office has created a robust experience for prospective students who are unable to tour the School in person. In addition to a brand new virtual campus tour video that introduces visitors to daily life at the School, students and families are now able to explore its buildings and surrounding spaces via 3D scans.
“These new videos are incredible!” says Dean of Admission Scott Bohan. “While they cannot replace the feeling of walking into the Chapel or the Lindsay Center, they do capture the essence and beauty of our buildings.”
This new technology is the latest in a series of adaptations the Admission Office has made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Bohan, the focus has always been on showcasing the campus and the community as authentically as possible. “We’re continuing to develop and add tools to accomplish these goals,” he says. “We want families to be able to chat with our current students so that we can showcase the young people we have here.”
While everyone hopes that visitors will be welcome to tour and explore SPS again soon, there are always families who are unable to make the trip to Concord. Through technology and video, the Admission Office is making the process more accessible going forward.
