Spend A Day At Cathedral

What is a Shadow Day?
Come be a VIP—“Very IRISH Person”—for a day! We invite all 8th-grade students, or students currently in high school considering transferring to Cathedral, to spend a day in the life of one of our students, meeting teachers, attending classes and experiencing what being IRISH is all about!

Who will I shadow?
Visiting students will be hosted by a freshman or sophomore student (or someone in their same grade if already in high school) who has similar co-curricular interests and/or academic abilities.

What about lunch?
Shadow visitors will be provided a complimentary lunch ticket, although they also are welcome to bring a sack lunch.

What should I wear?
Visitors should wear casual clothing suitable for school. No shorts are allowed, and no jeans are permitted unless your student is scheduled to visit on a designated "jeans day." Sport shoes such as sneakers, tennis shoes, etc. are permitted.

When can I shadow?
2020-2021 Shadow Dates and a link to register will be announced in early August.

Who do I contact with questions?
Please contact Maribeth Cloud in the Admissions Office with any questions about your shadow day experience. Maribeth can be reached at mcloud@gocathedral.com.

We look forward to your VIP day at Cathedral!
