Annie Wright celebrates Middle Schoolers. This unique admissions event, which takes place on a Saturday morning each February, shows how students in Grades 6, 7 & 8 thrive at Annie Wright, whether in a math, Chinese or film class, on the athletic field, on stage, or in the Grand Canyon or another Middle School trip venue. If you like technology, meeting new people, a creative challenge and more, Ticket to Thrive is the event for you!

At this event you will:
  • Learn all about Annie Wright
  • Meet current students and faculty
  • Participate in fun & engaging activities
  • Have a free lunch
  • Get all your questions answered
  • ...and fast track your application!

What to Expect

"When I started the application process for my daughter, I was relying on the web page and sharing with her the things I'd heard by word of mouth to engage her. She was definitely interested, but the Ticket to Thrive event put her over the moon to attend AWS. It's one thing to hear about the IB and AWS's reputation from Mom - quite another to meet happy, excited students her own age."
