Virtual Open House At Immaculate High School
DANBURY— Virtual Open Houses for Immaculate High School are open to the public on April 15, April 23, and April 28. Virtual learning days have been ongoing daily for Immaculate students since school buildings were ordered closed in Connecticut, and now Immaculate High School will offer students interested in enrolling or transferring to IHS a virtual program where they can learn about Immaculate’s college-preparatory program.
A Virtual Open House tour is scheduled for Wednesday, April 15, at 9 am, noon, and 4 pm. Visit www.immaculatehs.org/openhouse to register. Additional Virtual Open Houses are scheduled for April 23 and April 28. Participants will meet virtually with administrators, faculty, and other staff to learn about Immaculate’s academic, faith-based, athletic, fine arts and STEM programs, student life and more.
Despite social distancing mandates, every IHS student is currently following a regular class schedule virtually. In addition to required class attendance and coursework, students engage with counselors, peer tutors, the school therapist and the school nurse. They also participate in weekly physical education challenges and meet with their extra-curricular club advisors.
“Our ability for our teachers and staff to provide a continuous engaging educational experience for our students daily exemplifies our school mission and ability to provide exceptional learning opportunities, especially during this time of uncertainty,” said Tom Burns, Director of Admissions. “For over 50 years, Immaculate has provided students with a Catholic education that is innovative and prepares the whole student for college and beyond,” he added.
Immaculate High School encourages students to find success in academics, athletics, fine arts, and clubs and is ranked in the top ten of all Catholic high schools in the State of Connecticut by NICHE.
