Administration and Student Council host Prospective Student Open House today

To gain insight and demonstrations on the school’s numerous career and technical based curriculum, parents and prospective students may tour the campus tomorrow from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., meeting with students and program leaders.

“We are more than willing to help any parents, family and/or incoming high school students by giving them a tour around our amazing campus and answering questions they might have,” Student Council member Bevlynn Cheng said. “Personally, I can’t wait to give an outstanding tour. Of course, we intend to recruit some new coyotes!”

In addition to having all program leaders on campus to discuss their curriculum and fees, administration, counselors and Community Partnership Coordinator Mr. Craig Statucki will be available to address inquiries, as well.

“It’s always rewarding being able to give tours to incoming freshmen and their family as a StuCo member,” Class of 2016 senior D.A. historian Rein Villahermosa said. “You realize that you make a good impression on some of the best potential students to make the school better!”

To clarify aspects of the application and lottery process, there will be a short presentation in the Coyote Ballroom at 6:15 p.m., 6:45 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

“After putting extensive time into the Hospitality program, such as when I competed at DECA state, I can’t wait to share my experiences and insight with students interested in the program,” senior Neil Montemayor said.

If assistance is required for the application process, administration will provide laptops in Room B-112 for parents and potential students to complete or make changes to their online applications.

“I hope that SWCTA has a good amount of visitors and on-site applications filled out,” Student Council adviser Mrs. Miriya Julian said.

For prospective students currently attending a private, charter or out of district school, their first semester report cards must be submitted before the application deadline on Feb. 2 at 3 p.m.

“The tours that Student Council gives are in hopes that prospective students consider the possibility of attending Southwest CTA more seriously and more enthusiastically than before,” Student Council member Karel Saquing said.
