TCS announces new open house date
TROY — Troy Christian Schools has rescheduled its open house event for 1:30-3:30 p.m. Feb. 23.
The open house is being held at Troy Christian High School, 700 S. Dorset Road and Troy Christian Elementary/Early Childhood Education Center, 1586 McKaig Ave., Troy.
The open house, originally scheduled for Jan. 26, was cancelled due to weather.
“Our theme is “Passport to Education” and we are encouraging open house visitors to get a ‘stamp’ at several ‘destinations’ from both buildings on our campus,” said superintendent Dr. Gary Wilber, who noted that passports only will be available until 3 p.m. so visitors have time to complete the tour.
For anyone visiting the open house and properly completing a “passport,” the school will offer a $75 discount off enrollment fees. In addition, completed passports will be entered into a drawing for one year of free tuition.
“We have so much to offer here — from our new infant care room to our 3-D printer for our CAD students to our missions and leadership programs — not to mention all the excitement with our athletics. We invite anyone interested in Christian education to visit on February 23,” Dr. Wilber added. “We have financial aid and scholarship information available at open house.”
The event is free and light refreshments will be served.
For more information, and for official rules of the tuition contest, visit www.troychristianschools.org, or call the school office at 339-5692.
