John Bapst invites 8th graders from the greater Bangor area and around the state to visit the school for our annual Step-Up Day.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by student ambassadors who will serve as your tour guides for the day. You will have an opportunity to tour the school, talk to current students, visit some 9th grade classes and meet faculty and staff members. During the morning program you will have a chance to watch a typical John Bapst day unfold and ask questions to learn more from students and teachers.
You’ll have lunch–pizza provided by the school–with your fellow 8th graders and current John Bapst students. If you have dietary restrictions you are welcome to bring a lunch.
Your day will end with a pep rally in your honor. During the pep rally you will hear from representatives of student groups about the leadership and community service opportunities for incoming freshmen. At the end of the pep rally, chorale and the cheerleaders will perform. Before you leave, you’ll have access to all the information you’ll need to apply to John Bapst for the 2011-12 school year.
