Admissions Director, Dr. Donna Bryant said the majority of families in attendance were from Alabama, and one family came from Freer, Texas. “We are very fortunate that our enrollment has remained steady, and expect the number of applicants to pick up in the next month as parents begin making decisions for the upcoming school year.”
Student ambassadors took a prominent leadership role in Open House activities by leading tours at the Abbey Church, gymnasium and classroom building. They also provided the welcoming remarks to open the day. Additionally the drama department, under the direction of Mr. Rodney Fike provided a short skit from the upcoming Wizard of Oz production. The Saints All Star Band under the direction of Mr. Lester Harris entertained guests with several tunes as well.
“Our guests remarked on the poise and confidence with which our students spoke and presented themselves,” Dr. Bryant said. “Several prospective students are planning to return to take part in our Shadow Day Program.”
Shadow Day gives students an opportunity to see what student life is all about at St. Bernard Prep. Bryant said, “We place our guests in a classroom of their peers, and this experience gives them a real insight to the learning experience at St. Bernard.”
