Early Sunday morning, as many people were pulling the covers back over their heads, hundreds of students arrived on the BC High campus at 10am to prepare for the biggest admissions event of the school year.

Members of the Robert J. Fulton Chapter of the National Honor Society, Admissions Ambassadors, senior and junior mentors, and a sizable number of underclassmen dispersed throughout the school grounds to provide helpful and insightful information for possible incoming Freshman and Arrupe students.

When asked why he willingly opted to spend his Sunday morning of a long weekend at school, senior James Doherty stated, “the open house had a huge impression on me when I was considering joining the BC High Community. Now being in an upperclassman position, it feels really good to give back to the school by sharing my experiences with the rising seventh and ninth graders.”

Senior Sam Mecha said “[the open house] was a success because it gave students a glimpse at all that the school has to offer.”

Over fifty clubs and sports teams held information tables in the McNiece Gym, and every academic subject had its own booth in the Cadigan Gym. Where the event really shined, however, was during the face-to-face experiences that every family had through a student-lead tour, which offered up personalized experiences of the campus, and allowed families to get up close and personal with a student.

Each year, the open house is an integral part of carrying out the legacy of BC High’s strong, diverse, and religious student body. It was certainly nice to see the entire community come together and rally around the aspiring classes of 2022 and 2024 by offering experiences and insight into the lives of BC High students.
