Back to School: Take a Virtual Tour of Fairfield Prep

Back to School: Take a Virtual Tour of Fairfield Prep

Huda Khalid

Fairfield Prep, one of the most prestigious prep schools in the northeast, needed to showcase its state-of-the-art facilities to potential students.

But with the global pandemic, their usually popular and successful in-person campus tours had to be postponed. Fairfield needed to show students the school facilities without compromising the safety of students, parents or staff.

We proposed a virtual tour. A virtual tour would allow prospective students to tour the facilities, meet students, and get a feel for the place—without setting foot on school grounds.


An immersive, interactive experience

The York & Chapel team went onsite at Fairfield to create an engaging 360° experience of Fairfield Prep. Two of the school’s own students—Will and Caleb—led the tour and did a spectacular job of making any prospective students feel right at home.

Using aerial drone photography, we captured beautiful scenes of the school quad and sports facilities. We used 360° video equipment to capture every corner of the building interiors, including the library, the cafeteria and the gymnasium. And because we’re serious about social distancing, we followed social distancing protocols throughout the shoot.


Here’s a sneak peek at the final cut. Use your mouse or swipe your smartphone to look around.


The client was delighted with the video. Here’s what they had to say:

‘When I was introduced to York & Chapel my expectations were set extremely high. After working with the team at Y&C throughout this project, they somehow exceeded my high expectations. From the consistent, thorough communication to their ability to listen and understand our institutional needs, the Y&C team was spectacular. 

The final product showcases the talents of York & Chapel only in support of the message and Mission of Fairfield Prep. I would highly recommend Y&C to anyone looking to enhance or create their marketing campaign.’

–Kevin J. Altieri, Director of Admissions, Fairfield Prep


The rise of virtual tours

Virtual tours are becoming an increasingly popular choice for businesses. From hotels and real estate to schools and nursing homes, virtual tours are an effective, affordable option for any facility-based business. 

As a scalable alternative to in-person tours, virtual tours are a win-win for any business. Thousands of potential customers can view one virtual tour, and prospective clients can tour on their own time from the convenience of their laptop or smartphone.
