The school hosted its first-ever “Transfer Tuesday” on April 26 to welcome prospective students who were looking to explore another option for the remainder of their high school career.
“The purpose of Transfer Tuesday was to increase our existing classes’ enrollment, especially in our Class of 2019. Since we will have more space next year, we wanted to make girls aware that it is not too late to join Trinity Hall,” said Director of Advancement and Admissions Theresa Kiernan, who planned and facilitated the event with Christina Bergamo, admissions and college counselor. “We announced our permanent campus in Tinton Falls after school started this past fall, so for students who could not enroll due to our location, it may have made a difference,” Kiernan continued.
The turnout for the inaugural Transfer Tuesday, three prospective students for the Class of 2019, met Kiernan’s expectations. “I expected a small but interested selection of students — and that’s exactly what we got!” she said.
The visitors spent the morning shadowing a current freshman so that they could experience both the curriculum and environment of Trinity Hall. They also met with Kiernan to get more information about the school and the application process.
“The students who came had a nice day, saw some old friends, and changed their perspective on what an all-girls high school is like,” Kiernan said. “Even if they choose not to apply for next year, I consider [Transfer Tuesday] a success and would be happy to do it again next year.”
