A Big Welcome at Our 2016 Family Open House
A crowd of 148 new Crusade families attended our 2016 Family Open House event on October 27. The program started with greetings from Candace Harper, Family Engagement Coordinator; Laurel Shepard, Associate Director for Admissions & Family Engagement; Lauren Schechtman, Associate Director of Integrated Services; and William Formicola, Senior Vice President of Operations. Parents of new Crusaders in grades 6 and 7 from Providence, Pawtucket, Central Falls, Woonsocket, and Cranston were then able to meet in small groups with their child’s College Crusade Advisor, ask questions, and learn all about our programs and services.
Many thanks to our wonderful staff of Middle School Advisors for welcoming our new parents and providing information about how they help students prepare for higher education. Thanks to our dedicated staff of Family Liaisons for creating a friendly atmosphere and helping our event run smoothly.
We also thank our partner ASCENSUS for providing a table of information about how the Rhode Island CollegeBoundSaver program can help families save for their children’s college costs.
Wow. We are excited to help all our new Crusaders stay on track to graduate high school in 2023 and 2024 and go off to college!
