Xavier College Preparatory will host its annual ‘8th Grade Day’ 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, and its ‘Open House’ 12-3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1.
Both events are free and will take place on Xavier’s campus, 4710 N. Fifth Street in Phoenix. The entrance is on 7th Street and Highland Avenue.
Eighth Grade Day is an opportunity for eighth grade students to experience Xavier on a school day, according to a press release. Scheduled activities will include a welcome assembly, student-led classroom visits, an all-school pep rally, and lunch.
Participation is free, but interested students are asked to register online by visiting www.xcp.org, clicking “Admissions,” then “8th Grade Day,” according to the release. This is a student event, so there will not be any planned activities for parents.
The open house is to be an opportunity for students of all ages and their parents to attend an Xavier informational session, tour the school, and meet the faculty and coaches, stated the release. Information sessions begin at 12:15 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. in the Virginia G. Piper Performing Arts Center, and student-led campus tours will be available throughout the day. Registration is not necessary.
Additionally, eighth grade students may schedule a visit to Xavier’s campus for a full school day and attend classes with a student ambassador on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from November through February by visiting www.xcp.org, clicking “Admissions,” then “Shadow Program,” and submitting an online request form.
