Dates Set for Touring Tuesdays at Catholic Elementary Schools

The archdiocese has scheduled its “Touring Tuesdays’’ open house events at its Catholic elementary schools for 9 -11 a.m. on Nov. 14, Dec. 5, Jan. 9, Jan. 30, Feb. 13, March 13 and April 24.

The event on Jan. 30 takes place during National Catholic Schools Week.

The Tour Tuesday open houses, attended by thousands of families since their inception in 2013, are planned to introduce prospective families to the life-long benefits and value of a Catholic education.

“Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York offer a unique combination of academic and spiritual development that helps children of all backgrounds get the best start in life. More than 99 percent of our high school seniors graduate and 99 percent of those graduates go on to post-secondary education, making a Catholic education one of the best investments a parent can make in their children’s future,’’ said Dr. Timothy J. McNiff, superintendent of schools for the archdiocese, in a statement.

Reservations are required and can be made at https://catholicschoolsny.org/touring-tuesdays or by calling bilingual helpline at (646) 794-2884. School tours can be scheduled for other times to accommodate parents’ schedules.
