SOMERVILLE, NJ - Immaculata High School rolled out the ‘blue’ carpet and welcomed over 600 guests at its recent Open Home to demonstrate to prospective students and families what the school represents.

The concept of Open Home showcases the sense of family that pervades the atmosphere of Immaculata, evidence by a high-energy display of classroom demos, athletics and activities expo, customized tours, videos, and key information sessions. On hand to orient the potential Spartans through the school were over 100 students, the entire faculty and staff, as well as alumni and current parents.

One of the newest ‘additions’ at Immaculata was announced by Principal Jean Kline in her welcoming address; the Unitas Prospectus (UP) Program. The UP Program provides focused support for students with academic challenges. Immaculata also showcased their new AP Capstone Program, highlighting that they are the only high school offering this course in Somerset, Middlesex, Hunterdon, and Mercer Counties. Representatives from Georgian Court University were also in attendance, answering questions on the new joint initiative with Immaculata for online courses and guaranteed admissions.

One of the highlights at this year’s event was a presentation on the Freshmen Experience.  Since Immaculata draws from a large geographic area, it is important to stress how seamlessly the freshman body blends into a unified unit.  Student speakers from diverse areas addressed their own experiences, beginning before school starts with fall sports and music and the amazing Lata Living program, about how from day one they felt part of a community.  Alumni and current parents were on hand to mirror that sentiment.  

Any individuals who missed the Open Home can arrange for a private tour or sign up for the Spartan for a Day Program by contacting Michele Blandino at or calling her at (908) 722-0200 ext.218.
