Every year, Nardin Academy invites prospective students and their families to tour the school and learn about some of the amazing opportunities Nardin offers. This all occurs over the two days of Open House, which took place on October 1st and 2nd this year.

Over one hundred current Nardin students volunteered to give tours, help in classrooms, and help present clubs and sports.

For just a few hours over two days, Nardin was on display and our staff and students got to show what makes Nardin Academy great! While on tours, prospective students got to meet teachers and learn about classes and life at Nardin.

Every department including religion, world language, math, science, English, and social studies, had their rooms full of projects and pictures to describe their curriculum.

In the religion room girls got to decorate a paper flower to be put with others, and Ms. Podd gave each student a stone with words of faith on them.

In the Social Studies room, prospective students and their parents learned about last year’s Hidden Figures day and got to test their knowledge of history with quotes and pictures of ancient leaders.

English teachers allowed students to answer questions about past classes and favorite books.

In the math department, girls were given math fidget spinners made of paper to play with. These were especially popular and girls spent a lot of time trying to figure out how they work.

The science room was incredibly interesting with experiments at every turn. Prospective students got to see how pressure can expand or contract a marshmallow and how temperature changes can cause a soda can to combust.

The world language room displayed a beautiful board of chinese characters and artwork. Spanish, Latin and French projects were also on display.

In the gym, clubs and sports were displayed so 7th and 8th graders could see some of the great extracurriculars Nardin offers.

Mrs. Malinowski also had students come to Campus Ministry to learn about Nardin’s service and faith initiatives such as masses, service day, and service trips.

In the dining hall, students and parents got to taste some of the food and cookies Nardin is famous for.

Porter the therapy dog also made an appearance this year. His part in the school community surprised and excited some of the prospective students.

This year’s open house was even more successful than in years past. Mrs. Dodman, who is in charge of admissions at Nardin, reported this year’s open house brought in more students than the past four years!

Not to mention, this year was incredibly special because this was the first open house for our new principal, Mrs. Forgette.

We can only hope that many of the students who came to visit Nardin over those two days will become part of the Nardin family over the next few years! We would love to have them!
