After two years of keeping campus visits limited, Campion Academy was able to once again host an Academy Day this past Friday. Academy Day is an annual free open house for prospective students in seventh through eleventh grades.
The visiting students were able to start off their day with activities planned by the Student Association (SA) officers including, human bumper ball, jousting, and knockout.
Sarah, an 8th grader, shared her highlight of the visit: “The activities in the morning were my favorite part of the day and playing bubble soccer. I feel good about coming to Campion next year, and I thought the event was nice.”
The SA officers gave tours throughout the day which left a strong impression on Sarah, “The students who gave the tour were kind, and they answered all of our questions.”
Academic contests were held as well as opportunities for the students to win various scholarships including athletics and music.
Dean Helm, Business Manager, with his creative art known as Helmdini, entertained the students with a special magic performance. Evie, 8th grader, pointed out, “My favorite part was the magic show.” Evie further explained that she is excited to come to Campion because during her visit, the students were friendly and welcoming.
The students toured the dorms and participated in mini-scramble games before their last meal from the Cafeteria. Dean and Sue Helm took the students out for ice cream to satisfy their sweet teeth after dinner. Angel, 8th grade, remarked, “I enjoyed the ice cream. The classes and the people who were there were nice.”
The day came to a close with an award show and a vespers in the Chapel. The visiting students were sent off with a farewell gift put together by Campion Academy with the hope of seeing our visitors again as future students.
