Information for prospective visitors:
Codman Academy has hosted hundreds of educator visits from all around the world who have found a day at Codman to be a powerful professional development experience. We have hosted groups from Germany, Japan, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Russia, and England and across the U.S.. Visitors have observed classrooms, talked to students, and met with members of our faculty and staff, technology department, and Executive Director, Meg Campbell and Principal, Thabiti Brown.
Generally, visits are informal and tailored to the needs of the group visiting. We welcome you warmly, but we also proceed with our work at hand! We ask every visitor to complete a feedback form to share impressions of your visit to help us improve our practice. All fees raised from our Educator Visitor Program go to Codman's professional development fund. For a day-long visit, the suggested fee is $75 per person and includes materials. If this is a hardship for your school, we will work with you to make other arrangements.
Thursdays are designated as Educator Visitor day, and include our school-wide Community Circle at 9 am.
To arrange a visit please send an email to Meg Campbell, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org with the requested date of your visit and number of educators. Please note if you will be paying by purchase order. Thank you for considering an educator visit to Codman! Click here for directions to Codman Academy.
