Virtual Campus Tour

 I chose to attend Father Ryan when I toured because I loved how all of the teachers were connecting with their students. During my Visit Day in 8th grade, everyone welcomed me and made me feel like I belonged. Father Ryan has given me so many leadership opportunities in the House System and Mentor Group, which has helped me step out of my comfort zone and make new friends.
