Tours & More

Is your child a 5th, 6th or 7th grader and interested in applying to Santa Barbara Middle School? Our regular campus visit program is designed specifically for you! Campus family tour options are available twice a week. Your visit to the Santa Barbara Middle School will include an Admission Information Session, led by an admissions counselor, and Guided Campus Tour, led by an admissions counselor, often accompanied by an SBMS student. Our team is happy to ensure that your questions are answered. We want you to walk away with an understanding of the distinctive, unique and specialized junior high school experience Santa Barbara Middle School offers. Your ability to visit campus and learn more about the admissions process is sure to make a difference in your junior high school research. Times and availability vary by date and during peak visitation seasons.

Visiting a campus is the best way to get a real sense of what that campus life is like. When you are choosing the place you will be spending the next four years, it is important for both the student and family to spend time on that campus and ask all questions you have before making your decision.

There are several different ways to learn more about the Santa Barbara Middle School. In addition to the above mentioned family tours, we also offer two Open House options (see Admissions Calendar).

If you would like to schedule reserve a spot on one of the family tours, please contact Admissions Director, Whitney Ingersoll: 
Whitney@sbms.org. The family tours are offered Wednesday mornings at 8:30 and Tuesday afternoons at 3:00. Please allow 90 minutes for the tour, questions and answers.

If you would prefer to come to an Open House, the dates and times are found on the Admissions Calendar. Both the Open House and the family tour have the same information; just delivered in a different way. You do not need to come to both. Either will give you a complete introduction to our unique program. Once you and your child spend time on our campus, meeting our teachers and students, you will see how Santa Barbara Middle School actively specializes in the Junior High school years; and how we guide and support this pivotal and transformational time in the life of your child.
