School aims to showcase offerings and increase student enrollment
Niagara Catholic Junior-Senior High School has announced a celebration of the institution's 40th anniversary and the launch of its "Welcome to the Family" open house campaign to help increase student interest and enrollment. NCHS is inviting all prospective students and parents to attend the school's official open house from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sept. 27.
"Niagara Catholic students receive unparalleled attention, along with an impressive array of program offerings that allow them to better prepare for the future," said Ronald Buggs, president and principal. "This September's open house is a perfect opportunity to explore our facility and meet the faculty, and we are hopeful that the 'Welcome to the Family' promotional campaign will engage an even larger collection of interested students, parents and alumni."
Niagara Catholic Junior-Senior High School is a college preparatory school built on the foundations of St. Mary's, Madonna, and Bishop Duffy high schools. Since 1975, Niagara Catholic has provided faith-based, affordable and family-oriented education.
"At Niagara Catholic, students are more than just a number - they're family," said Judi Nolan Powell, chair of the NCHS board of trustees. "Students are given the values and tools necessary to be successful, and they learn the importance of tradition passed down by St. Mary's, Bishop Duffy and Madonna high schools."
As part of the "Welcome to the Family" campaign, NCHS is conducting alumni and prospective student engagement, as well as tactical activities such as the creation of email blasts, direct mail, posters, flyers, social media advertising, select radio advertising, student body referral contests and swag giveaways, lawn signs, social media content and graphics, usage of the #40years1family hashtag, alumni testimonials, custom media kits and ambassador visits to various local public schools.
"I am proud to be both an alumnus of Niagara Catholic as well as a trustee who is contributing to the 40th anniversary celebration," said Daniel DiPofi, a member of NCHS board of trustees. "It is a solid network of close-knit alumni that keeps our school connected to its past, while the institution continues to provide quality educational experiences year after year."
NCHS offers a robust selection of academic programming, including Niagara University Advantage, a program that facilitates the earning of substantial college credit for high school students. The school also has an expansive hospitality and tourism program, and is in the midst of advancing a new athletic facility called The Niagara.
Students who are interested in enrolling at NCHS are encouraged to apply online.
