TREASURE COAST -- John Carroll High School is hosting an open house party complete with tours, a free tailgate party, complimentary admission to a home football game, and a chance to win free tuition.
The celebration will be Oct. 18 from 4-6 p.m. on campus. Prospective sixth through 11th graders, along with their families, are encouraged to take advantage of this creative and fun Open House event.
JCHS students, the school's best ambassadors, will be giving tours of the campus while introducing guests to the faculty and staff. There will be opportunities to ask questions regarding the state-of-the art technology programs, college preparatory curriculum, tuition assistance, the impressive athletic department, and the placement exam.
At the conclusion of the tours, all prospective students and their families can enjoy free hamburgers, hot dogs, and the traditional tailgate specialties under the oak hammock by the football field. Guests can then enjoy complimentary admission to our football game versus Pine Crest, which begins at 7 p.m. At halftime JCHS will be giving away free tuition, a $7,000 value, to a prospective 8th grader who completed the tour.
John Carroll prides itself on giving students the foundation of a Catholic-Christian character combined with a quality education by providing the tools necessary to become morally strong and successful in their collegiate years and beyond. John Carroll offers an atmosphere in which students receive individualized attention on a daily basis, inside and outside the classroom. Financial aid is available for families, as well as funding through the "Step Up For Students" program, which allows students currently enrolled in public school or those already in the program to attend JCHS, with up to $4,800 in aid.
Academically, John Carroll students' standardized test scores are higher than the average local, state, and national results. Nearly every student attends college after graduation, with 60% of 2013 graduates earning Bright Futures Scholarships, which help pay for college tuition. At JCHS, nearly every student participates in at least one of our 22 interscholastic sports or 23 extracurricular activities. Numerous Dual Enrollment, Advanced Placement, Honors, and Academic level classes are offered.
John Carroll High School has students, both Catholic and non-Catholic, from Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin, and Okeechobee counties.
