Open Connections

PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES: Open Connections continues to be open, virtually. We recognize that springtime is often when prospective families tour the OC campus and come for an in-person interview. While our physical campus is closed for the time being, we ARE continuing to conduct interviews via Zoom or FaceTime. If you are considering enrollment for Fall 2020, we encourage you to take advantage of this option! To learn more about setting up a virtual interview, please click the "Inquire" link. We look forward to “meeting” you and showing you all that OC has to offer. Thank you for your interest in Open Connections! CURRENT FAMILIES: Please check your email for the kick-off schedule for distance learning!

Nora Gillern

Board Member, OC Alumna

Nora joined the Board in July 2016 to serve on the Development Committee with a particular focus on connecting with recent OC alumni. Nora first joined the OC Community as a young person in 2004 and spent eight happy years at OC before graduating in 2012.


After she graduated from Open Connections Nora went to Eugene Lang: The New School for Liberal Arts in New York, where she graduated in 2015 with a Bachelors in History.


Nora currently lives in Manhattan where she is an Account Manager for 24 Seven Talent, a job which allows her to pursue her passion for the beauty industry and knowledge of the creative and retail fields by partnering with companies around the world and matching them to their ideal employees. This venture was proceeded by years of working in retail stores within the beauty industry, most recently as the General Training Manager of Bluemercury in New York.


During her teen years at OC, Nora played an integral role in creating and implementing the teen formals.  We are excited to bring Nora’s exceptional event planning skills back to the OC Community, and look forward to the contributions she will make towards strengthening our alumni network.
