Opportunities to Visit Canisius

By CHS staff


This is the time of year when families of eighth graders begin the process of deciding on a high school for next year. That process usually involves campus visits. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, campus visits are a little different this year, but with additional health and safety protocols in place there are still opportunities for eighth grade boys to visit Canisius and get a feel for what life is like at Western New York's only Jesuit high school. These opportunities include:

Open House
Boys in grades 5-8 (and potential transfer students) and their families can tour campus, and meet current students, teachers and coaches.
October 17, 18, or 20.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Reserve a time at canisiushigh.org/openhouse.
All must wear masks.
