School open house for city residents July 21

A Catholic school registration fair for Baltimore City residents will take place July 21 from 6-8 p.m. at the Catholic Center, on 320 Cathedral St. Representatives of city Catholic schools will be present to answer questions and enroll students.

“This fair is just one in a number of efforts we are undertaking this summer to reach out to people to assure them Catholic schools are alive and well and that they continue to be an excellent value in the marketplace,” Archdiocese of Baltimore spokesman Sean Caine said.

“Students who attend Catholic schools are more likely to graduate, attend college, and become leaders in the community. Our schools are safe and academically-excellent and we are making great strides to make them more affordable and accessible to the children in our community.”

People who benefitted from Partners in Excellence (PIE) last year will need to reapply through a new process this year for the aid in 2010-2011. Caine said representatives will be at computer stations to help people reapply.

Free parking will be available in the Franklin Street Garage for the first 25 cars. $4 parking in the garage will later be available, as will street parking. For more information, 1-800-5-CATHOLIC or visit
