Bergen Catholic Welcomes the Class of 2027 on Freshman Orientation Day

ORADELL, NJ, September 7, 2023 – Bergen Catholic High School welcomed 198 new Crusaders representing the Class of 2027 to campus for their Freshman Orientation on Thursday morning in Oradell.

The members of the Class of 2027 were welcomed into the school by Bergen Catholic President Dr. Brian Mahoney before entering into Hoehl Gymnasium where they listened to presentations led by Bergen Catholic Principal Mr. Timothy McElhinney and the school administrative staff.

Following those presentations, the freshmen made their way to their homerooms for the first time in their BC careers. In homeroom, the freshmen received further instructions on normal school protocols and procedures from their homeroom teachers, were taken for their official yearbook and school ID pictures, and received technology training for all their school devices courtesy of a digital demonstration on the school’s in-house television station, BCTV.

Two days earlier, the Class of 2027 participated in the “BC Freshman Experience” hosted by the BC Student Government Association, which encompassed a scavenger hunt around the Bergen Catholic campus, team-building exercises, and plenty of chances to forge lasting friendships as the newest members of the Bergen Catholic Brotherhood.
