Shadow for a Day
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?
Between mid-September and mid-December, over 35 days are available to select from on the registration form! Please note the start time varies depending on the school schedule for the day.
