The Forristals – Meridith Armstrong Forristal ’92 and Jerry Forristal ’90 – are excited to have their daughter, Avery ’22, continue the family tradition of attending O’Dowd. And they’re not alone. The Forristals are among 34 Legacy Families in the Class of 2022.
“Our daughter grew up hearing the stories of our days at O’Dowd. She has seen, and is a part of, the many friendships that were forged in the halls and on the fields of O’Dowd so when it came time to pick a high school there really wasn’t a question about where she’d go. There’s no other place for our family where the balance of academic rigor, athletics, diversity and service blend to create the ideal high school experience,” Meridith said.
“We continue to see a high number of legacy families apply and enroll, a testament to the strength of our program and faith that students who leave O’Dowd and go into the world have positive outcomes beyond high school. Our values driven curriculum has always been pivotal to an O’Dowd education and families keep coming back,” Director of Admissions Kerryn Pincus said.
