Every year countless 7th and 8th graders are asked where they are planning to go to high school. With numerous public and private high schools scattered throughout Orange County, there are many options to choose from. And when faced with having to choose one high school to attend, it can be a daunting process. Luckily many high schools make the process easier for those junior high students by visiting their individual schools. 

Rosary Academy is one of the high schools that makes a point to go visit elementary schools to help the 7th and 8th graders with their high school decision. And since application season has begun, so too have school visits. 

Mrs. Huerta ‘10 is the Director of Admissions as well as the leader of the Ambassador Program. She is the one who coordinates the many school visits and asks for Ambassador volunteers.

Rosary Ambassadors are trained in how to conduct school visits at the beginning of the year. At their annual training, they practice public speaking as well as make sure they know every single fact that there is to know about Rosary Academy.

When asked what she loves about school visits, Katie Thomas ‘22 said, “I love being able to go back and see the kids in elementary schools and tell them about my experience at Rosary. I love the school so much and it makes me so happy to share all of my experiences.”

Furthermore, Lauren Cottrell ‘22 shared that school visits are important because, “they allow students who might not know about Rosary to hear about it.”

School visits are an integral part of making sure that Rosary’s name is promoted throughout elementary schools. And by having dedicated Ambassadors who go on these visits, Rosary is making sure it is well represented.
