Elementary schools throughout the Archdiocese of New York will host an archdiocesan-wide open house event, “Touring Tuesday,” from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, January 27. These universal open houses are scheduled throughout the school year and are designed to introduce prospective families to the life-long benefits and value of a Catholic education.
“Touring Tuesdays” offer an exciting way to see Catholic schools in action, and provide families with an opportunity to learn about the admissions process and meet with principals, faculty, other parents and students from Pre-K through Grade 8.
Last year’s open houses were incredibly successful, resulting in more than 1,200 new students enrolled throughout the archdiocese. The upcoming “Touring Tuesday” open houses occur during National Catholic Schools Week 2015 and are also expected to be well-attended, with more than 150 elementary schools participating throughout the archdiocese. The theme for Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”
Reservations are required and can be made online at www.buildboldfutures.org or by calling a bilingual hotline, 646-794-2885. For those who cannot attend, school tours can also be arranged by appointment by calling the hotline or making a reservation online.
