Boarding School Virtual Tours
Boarding School Virtual tours are a valuable asset to Admissions Directors who are working with prospective parents and students. We started our business 12 years ago and one of the first virtual tours we created was for the behavioral health program where I worked as Assistant Director of Admissions. The virtual tour for the program where I worked allowed me to focus more on explaining our therapeutic program. Instead of answering logistical questions about our facilities, I could learn about the needs of the student and see if the school was a good fit for them.
I shared what I learned about virtual tours with other admissions directors I knew. Our business grew by referrals from other programs and has continued to grow with repeat business. One of our favorite places to visit and photograph is Lake Tahoe Prep. Lake Tahoe Prep (Formerly known as Squaw Valley Academy) is a boarding school located in the mountains near Lake Tahoe. The school focuses on students who benefit from small class sizes, college prep curricula and outdoor activities.
What Made this Photo Shoot Unique
We have photographed this program many times over the years. Their leadership team is committed to making improvements and advances and we are lucky they choose us to showcase their work. Their students come from all over the country and all over the world. They learned how valuable the Boarding School virtual tour is for their admissions staff.
People choosing to enter treatment for substance abuse are often overwhelmed with uncertainty and questions. Our goal is to show prospective students “A Day In the Life” of the program. The virtual tour can help answer some of the questions about the logistics of the facility. Hopefully this allows them to focus on choosing the right therapeutic program with confidence.
Mixing Business With Pleasure
Lake Tahoe is simply one of the most beautiful places on earth. We have visited many times and love it more each time we visit. We take our bicycles to our visits to Lake Tahoe. There are gorgeous bike paths that start right at the school. Some of our favorite bike rides have been around Lake Tahoe. That is usually the “pleasure” part of our trips to the area.
We stayed at a great condo at the Olympic Village on this trip. The Squaw Valley area was home to the 1960 Olympics and the Olympic Village is just up the road from Lake Tahoe Prep. Our condo looked out at the ski lifts and restaurants and stores. We visited during the off season which meant we were able to explore without crowds. In addition to exploring the village, we also visited town and saw beautiful views of the lake itself.
Thanks to Bill Grant and the team at Lake Tahoe Prep for making this another great visit to Squaw Valley!
