Jesuit’s Shadow Day Program is a terrific way for 8th, 9th or 10th grade students to experience what it is like to be a Jesuit student. While shadowing is not a mandatory part of the application process, applicants continually report that the shadow visit provides the best opportunity for them to experience life at Jesuit.
Our shadow guests will attend all activities with their host, including class, clubs, academic support, mass, assemblies, etc. Our Shadow Day program begins at 8:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and 9:30 a.m. on late start days to 1:45 p.m., and includes lunch.
Class of 2021 shadows begin in late October, and run until mid-December. If you attend a Catholic Elementary School or a private school that we visit, your shadow day is automatically scheduled for you. We invite public and other private schools to schedule their day by clicking the link below. Shadow Days are intended for young men currently in 8th grade.
Transfer applicant shadows will occur during the month of March.
