There's nothing equivalent to Elder's open house here--the purpose it serves at Elder (or at other private schools) doesn't exist. We did have something called an "open house" last year, which consisted of the superintendent setting aside a couple of hours to sit in the cafeteria and field questions from any parents who happened to stop in. I guess it's sort of the equivalent of a professor's office hours and about as well attended despite only happening once a year; it's certainly not a marketing tool and the only thing it has in common with what you refer to as "open house" is the name.Of course Elder needs enrollment. Every school needs enrollment or the school would cease to exist.
Do public schools not have open houses? I'm genuinely asking, I don't know?
Maybe, but it's not Jesuit. It's run by the Sisters of Commerce, err, Sisters of Charity. Not a Jesuit HS at all.I do feel very fortunate (blessed even)... but the “perfect Jesuit world“ that you reference (at least in Cincinnati) is probably down there on Central Parkway, at DePaul Cristo Rey-- now, you want to talk about doing MORE with less— that’s where it’s happening— check out the cover story on this month’s Catholic Telegraph, for more on that.
Good to hear— I’d been told that the Jesuits are involved with instruction there— perhaps that is also true— or maybe I was misinformed— I heard it from the X principal.DePaul Cristo Rey High School (DPCR) is a private, college-preparatory high school located in the Clifton neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. The non-diocesan school, which opened June 5, 2011, is one of 37 Catholic high schools that serve the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Named after St. Vincent de Paul, it is operated by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati as the 25th member of the Cristo Rey Network of work-study schools that target students from low-income families who could not otherwise afford a college education.
