WHY VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE?

At Open House, our goal is to get to know prospective parents who share a common vision for their children. Given these unprecedented circumstances, we hope this is the next best thing to an in-person event. We know many families are looking forward to the Fall and the new school year, and this event will help facilitate your family’s choice of education for your children.

Open House has a friendly, relaxed tone where we strive to get to know each prospective family personally — to help you determine if Cardinal Bernardin Montessori Academy is a good fit for your family. It will be an engaging and thought-provoking experience for you and your spouse. You will need to pre-register for this event in order to attend. We hope you’ll be joining us!
