The Archdiocese Of NY Announce “Touring Tuesdays” Open House Dates From Harlem To Houston

The Archdiocese of New York has announced the dates for its 2018-19 “Touring Tuesdays” open house events at 130 participating elementary schools throughout the Archdiocese of New York. 18 schools will be participating from Harlem to Houston. The events will take place on select Tuesdays throughout the school year from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, or by appointment.

The 2018-19 dates are November 13, December 4, January 8, January 29, 2019 (takes place during Catholic Schools Week), February 12, March 5, March 19, and April 9, 2019, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, or by appointment. Touring Tuesdays open house events are designed to introduce prospective families to the life-long benefits and value of a Catholic education, starting with Pre-K/UPK and extending through 8th Grade.

Since their inception in 2013, Touring Tuesday’s events have been attended by thousands of families across the Archdiocese. The tours offer a first-hand opportunity to see Catholic schools in action, providing families with an opportunity to learn about the admissions process and meet with principals, faculty, and other parents and students at the school.

“Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York offer a unique combination of academic and spiritual development that helps children of all backgrounds get the best start in life. More than 99 percent of our high school seniors graduate and 99 percent of those graduates go on to post-secondary education, making a Catholic education one of best investments a parent can make in their children’s future,”

Dr. McNiff added, “Ongoing investments in teacher training and technology help individualize instruction and maintain our strong curriculum and high academic standards. In 2017-18, Catholic elementary schools registered the fourth consecutive year of improved Math and English Language Arts (ELA) test scores, surpassing the gains in proficiency achievement of both New York State and City schools.”
