Xaverian High School in Bay Ridge welcomed prospective students and their parents to an Open House on Oct. 19, where visitors were greeted on the front steps by the school’s Pipe and Drum Corps.

The Open House, which took place at the school at 7100 Shore Road, allowed students and families to learn all about the programs the school has to offer, according to Xaverian officials.

In the cafeteria, students had the opportunity to chat with representatives from every department of the school, as well as current parents and alumni.

The next stop on the tour was the auditorium, where prospective students heard about the school from Xaverian President Bob Alesi (Class 1978), Student Coordinating Council President Louis Springer and Dean of Academics Daniel Sharib (Class of 1996).

After a visit to a classroom where students learned about Xaverian’s classroom environment, prospective students and their families spent time learning about the Michael T. Strianese STEM Program. With the 3D printer humming away on the creation of a plastic screw and bolt, the STEM lab was a highlight of the tour, according to school officials.

Families were also introduced to a Forensic Science lesson being taught by Dr. Lalita Krishnamurthy featuring an artificial crime scene. Students in Krishnamurthy’s Principals of Biomedical Science class are currently working to determine the cause of death of a fictional character, Anna Garcia.

The formal tour ended in the Technology Center, where groups were treated to classical music performed by Music at Xaverian. Xaverian Deacon Kevin McCormack offered the final presentation of the day.

Families were then free to head down to the gym to speak with representatives from all of school’s different clubs and athletic teams.
