Christian Brothers Academy was pleased to welcome more than 1000 people from around Central New York to its Annual Open House on October 30, 2011. The event was an opportunity for prospective families to tour the giraffe-themed hallways that embody this years “Go Above and Beyond” theme and find out more about a Lasallian education at CBA.
Student tour guides proudly shared the beautiful campus and offered their personal perspectives on the CBA experience.

“This was one of the best turnouts in years,” said Admissions Director Holly Dowd. “The Brothers spirit was definitely contagious as families learned more about our challenging academic curriculum, fine arts offerings, fun extracurricular activities and outstanding athletic programs.”
Some of the highlights of this years open house included a presentation by the cast of the junior high musical, “Honk! Jr.,” performances by student musicians, science experiments, a hands-on art exhibit and the chance to meet students, faculty and staff.
