In-Person Instruction

After a year and a half of remote-only instruction, we are happy to say that the Prep School will be returning to in-person instruction in 2021 - 2022!  We continue to be amazed by the flexibility and adaptability of our students, faculty, and families during this time of online learning.  We are so looking forward to welcoming everyone back the CMU campus, but please note that this return to in-person instruction will come with some mandatory protocols in accordance with CMU, the Office of General Council, and CMU Child Protection:
  • ALL Prep School participants, including students, parents/guardians, faculty, staff, and anyone else coming to campus for Prep School related activities must be masked at all times, indoors and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status.
  • For programs involving minors at Carnegie Mellon University, it is expected that all participants aged 5 years and older [this is a change from the previous requirement of only 12 and older] attest that they have either received a COVID-19 vaccine [this requirement DOES NOT include a booster], unless unable to be vaccinated due to a disability or strong religious/moral conviction orwill complete a COVID-19 test and provide negative test results to the Responsible Party within 72 hours prior to the program event.
    • NOTE: For ongoing or weekly occurring programs, testing is expected to be completed each week or prior to campus visits throughout the duration of the program.
  • An updated COVID-19 Attestation form is attached for reference and will need to be used effective today and forwardThis form should be completed by program participants and/or their parent/legal guardian, regardless of if a previous attestation form was completed in the Fall semester. 
  • Parent/guardian drop-off/pick up of minors is not subject to these requirements at this time. If guardian(s) are staying on or at campus for the duration of the program or event, then they are subject to the requirements as outlined in the current CMU Visitor Protocol.
  • These guidelines and protocols are subject to change based on the University’s minimum requirements for visitors to campus.
  • If there is some change in the region that necessitates a return to remote instruction, this will be communicated in a timely manner so as not to disrupt the school year.
Please note: While the primary learning modality in the Prep School beginning in the Fall will be in-person instruction, hybrid learning (i.e., remote + in person) may be used for private lessons with teacher and student agreement.  All elective classes will be held in person only.
