Cathedral Prep’s Open House is an opportunity for prospective students to visit the school and visit all its interesting qualities. Each component of Prep’s defining qualities were showcased in various areas throughout the school. The building was in tip top shape, looking its best for the families that were touring.
Teachers talked about their classes and essential curriculum they provide. All classes ranging from the science wing to the English rooms put on their best presentation for these parents. Volunteers in the science wing showed off the various labs that they do in class. One big component for all classrooms was to talk about how the iPads are integrated within the curriculum.
Additionally, Prep’s sports teams and various clubs/activities presented themselves to the families. All of Prep’s sports teams were in the gym: coaches and players from each respective team had kids sign up to receive notifications and updates. Complementary gifts were an enticing bonus. The various clubs and activities had presentations in the library. Student representatives explained the various things that those clubs do and the service they provide to the school.
Prep takes pride in providing a fantastic open house to leave students with a lasting impression. Many student volunteers are required to be at the forefront of this operation. Each area had students doing their best to make Prep an enticing opportunity. Prep senior Alex Welz stated, “Open House is an exciting time for Prep’s students to step up and keep Prep’s enrollment going.”
For many families, open house is a defining event for undecided students. The intention is to provide an introduction to what Prep is all about. This year’s open house should be looked back as a moment that sparked a student’s decision to become a member of Prep’s brotherhood.
