Christendom College will welcome students of Seton Home Study School to its Front Royal, Va., campus for a visit day on Friday, May 27. Featuring tours of Christendom’s beautiful, Shenandoah Valley-based campus, talks and presentations from Seton and Christendom staff, and a catered reception, the exclusive event is free of charge and is open to all Seton Home Student students and their families.
“Some individuals are not aware that both Christendom College and Seton Home Study were born of the same family. Dr. Warren Carroll founded Christendom College and his wife, Mrs. Anne Carroll, is the founder of Seton Home Study School. The idea behind each institution was providing an excellent, classical academic program faithful to the Church. So here at Christendom, we really have a special connection with Seton Home Study,” says associate director of admissions Zac Inman.
The visit day event will coincide with Seton Home Study’s Commencement weekend, with the exercises taking place in Front Royal the following day, Saturday, May 28.
“If families are coming out the day before Seton graduation, taking a couple hours to see Christendom College is a great way to spend the afternoon. We are also providing a wonderful evening reception free of charge to any Seton families that are visiting for Seton Graduation,” says Inman.
When Seton students and their families arrive at Christendom on Friday, they will begin their day with a comprehensive tour of Christendom’s campus, where they will see the college’s famed St. John the Evangelist Library, the recently refurbished Crusader Gymnasium and John Paul the Great Student Center, the college’s residence halls and classrooms, and the college’s Christ the King Chapel.
Following the tour, visitors will be given special presentations from Deacon Gene McGuirk from Seton Home Study and from Inman, giving them further info on the connection between the two schools, and how a Seton education can help prepare a student for success at Christendom College.
Later in the evening, visitors are welcome to a catered evening reception in the college’s St. Lawrence Commons, where they will be able to explore the college’s dining facilities and mix and mingle with Christendom and Seton staff members.
