Open House 2023

Thank you to all the families who joined us at Open House on October 15 and 16, 2023. Over 340 families heard from Principal DiRocco on how a Padua Franciscan education can make a difference in the lives of high school students. Teachers and students offered personalized tours that showcased Padua’s premier programs including MedTrack, MyTrack and Performing Arts. Coaches were available to speak with student athletes, and families were treated to some delicious samples from our Cafeteria.

As part of our MedTrack program’s partnership with University Hospitals, the UH Critical Care helicopter landed on the Padua baseball field during Open House. Some Padua alumni who work for UH were on site to speak with families.
