The Diocese of Phoenix Catholic Schools Office is holding high school information fairs over three days at as many locations aimed at helping eighth-graders and their families discern which Catholic high school might be the right for them.

Parents and students will be able to interact with representatives from all six award-winning Catholic high schools in one location. Students may also be able to sign up for an upcoming 8th Grade day, which often offer chances to experience campus life and school spirit, or an upcoming shadow day, which sets up campus visits based visits on an ordinary school day.

Each information fair will be held 6-7:30 p.m. the following dates and locations:

  • Sept. 25 at Bourgade Catholic High School (map)
  • Oct. 7 at Seton Catholic Preparatory in Chandler (map)
  • Oct. 22 at Notre Dame Preparatory High School in Scottsdale (map)
