Hello, my name is Ryan Sykora and I am a 2000 graduate of Bishop DuBourg High School. My job is to help families transition from grade school into high school, in addition to assisting transfer students who are seeking a better fit.
Why Bishop DuBourg? My high school experience was amazing. Academically, I was challenged in the classroom by teachers, as well as my peers to strive for excellence. Athletically, I was given the opportunity to play varsity early and often in multiple sports, which lead to an athletic scholarship, a DB Hall of Fame induction, and multiple conference and district titles. Socially, the co-educational atmosphere did not hinder my ability to learn and actually helped me interact positively with the opposite gender in college and in life.
The changes that have occurred at Bishop DuBourg since my graduation have been remarkable. The school has never looked better and the teachers and staff have never been more caring. The Academy of Advanced Studies has never challenged our students more and the one-to-one tablet initiative has transformed the way Cavaliers learn in the 21st century.
There has never been a better time to be a Cavalier and I encourage every student to attend a High School Night, Open House, sporting event or play. In addition, I strongly encourage you to participate in our Jr. Cav Shadow Program and spend a day with us to truly experience student life on campus.
Faith in Christ…Service to Others
