College Invites High School Juniors to Special Visit Days 

January 13, 2010

keatsThe Christendom College Admissions Office will host two special Junior Visit Days for prospective students who are in their junior year of high school on February 15 and April 12, from 8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., on its Front Royal, Va., campus.

After a welcome by the Admissions Office staff, students will be given an introduction to the rigorous academic life of the college. Then Christendom’s student ambassadors will lead individual tours of the campus, concluding with the opportunity to attend classes currently being offered.

Following 11:30 a.m. Mass in the Chapel of Christ the King, a special lunch with the faculty will be held in the Chapel Crypt, providing students with the opportunity to meet the faculty and get of taste of why Christendom calls its education “personal.”

A panel of students, including some members of the Student Life Office staff, will then field questions from the visiting students, after which a presentation on Christendom's Junior Semester in Rome will be given.

The day will end with a Q&A period and closing remarks by Director of Admissions Tom McFadden who will give some insights into applying to Christendom.

“Many people from the Northern Virginia area have heard about our college for years, but have never been out to see us,” says McFadden. “This might be the perfect time for high school juniors to see our campus in action, get answers to any questions they may have, and discover if Christendom may be the place for them.”

Students interested in attending the visit day must pre-register by contacting Christendom’s Associate Director of Admissions Mike Schmitt (mschmitt@christendom.edu or 800.877.5456 ext. 1293).
