PLANNING YOUR VISIT TO WINCHESTER THURSTON SCHOOL
As you plan your travels to Pittsburgh this fall, we invite you to visit WT to meet with our seniors. WT is located in the city of Pittsburgh in the Oakland neighborhood, less than one mile from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.
We encourage visits from Wednesday, September 4 through Friday, November 8 during the school day. Our visit times for this fall are designed when seniors are most likely not in class. Visits are only open to seniors (juniors may attend if they do not have another commitment) and a member of the College Counseling team will also be available to speak to you. If the available times do not work for your schedule, please let us know and we will try to find another time.
To view available days and times and to schedule a visit please, visit our online calendar in SCOIR. If you do not already have an account in SCOIR, you will be able to register using the link at the bottom of the sign-in page. More information about setting up school visits and downloading admissions documents (including integration with Slate) in SCOIR, can be found on their support website.
