WHAT: Sophomores and upperclassmen welcome freshmen to Burke Catholic.The school is exclusively a high school, meaning that unlike public schools, all incoming freshman at Burke are new to each other, and to the building and the school community as a whole.
WHEN: Friday, September 8, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
WHERE: John S. Burke Catholic High School, 80 Fletcher Street, Goshen, N.Y. 10924
The first day of school at John S. Burke Catholic High School offers an opportunity to observe the inclusive and embracive culture at the only Catholic high school in Orange County. On opening day, administrators revive connections by pairing freshmen with the same sophomores who gave them a tour during the “Eagle for a Day” visit months earlier. Upperclassmen, administrators and teachers join in to make the new students feel welcome and get to know each other.
