Open Houses:

Due to the health and safety procedures we have in place coupled with local COVID-19 restrictions, we will need to make some adjustments to the format of the Open Houses.

Both Open Houses will include a self-guided tour of the facility and campus, a chance to meet and observe faculty and staff, and an opportunity to meet with the Principal and Assistant Principal for questions. Please be advised, students will not be present in the building. Current parents will be available to help direct prospective parents and to offer insight on their experience at Blessed Sacrament School.
