Registering at Cardinal O'Hara
Early in each school year, eighth grade students attending parochial schools will begin to receive information about Cardinal O'Hara High School. Public school students, who are enrolled in parish religious education classes, can also expect to receive information about procedures for enrolling at Cardinal O'Hara. Any student, who does not attend parochial grade school or parish religious classes, but is interested in receiving information about Cardinal O'Hara High School, should call or email the Admissions Director, Mrs. Patti Arnold, (610-544-3800-ext.1870 or email@example.com) in order to place their name on the O'Hara mailing list.
Cardinal O'Hara High School will host two Open House events as well as three "Closer Look" evenings during the upcoming school year. Additionally parochial school students will have an opportunity to visit Cardinal O'Hara on Archdiocesan Universal Visitation Day held this year on Thursday November 14th. (NOTE: Students may visit only Catholic high schools of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Visitations to public schools or private schools, including private Catholic schools should not be taken on Universal Visitation Day)
Public school students may visit Cardinal O'Hara on O'Hara's Non-Diocesan Visitation Day on Friday December 6th.
Cardinal O'Hara High School also hosts three "Closer Look Evenings" each year. These meeting type settings are designed for families who have taken the time to visit O'Hara at other Open House events and who want a more in depth explanation of what is available at Cardinal O'Hara. These events are by reservation only. Those wishing to attend one of these "Closer Look Evenings" should call or email the Admissions Office at 610-544-3800-ext. 1870 or firstname.lastname@example.org . You can view the O'Hara Calendar online here.
All eighth Graders are invited to join the O'Hara Lions PRIDE. By becoming a member of the Pride students receive the LIONS PRIDE newsletter keeping them informed about things going on at O'Hara, and they are invited to attend O'Hara sports events and school theater productions free of charge. If you wish to join the PRIDE, just call or email, Patti Arnold, Admissions Director.
