Shadow Day


Shadow Day

Eighth-graders and transfer students applying for admission are strongly encouraged to shadow a current student for a day.  Shadow days begin September 10, 2018 and run through December 2018. While some requested dates will not be available, the Admissions Office will try its best to accommodate.

Parent Shadow Day Tours: Optional informational tours will be available for parents/guardians on shadow days starting at 8:15 a.m. Tours will last approximately 45 minutes but can be shortened to accommodate schedules. 

Some days are not available to shadows due to scheduling conflicts or they are booked to capacity. These days are:

Unavailable Days
September 11, 19, 25, 26
October 1, 5, 10, 17, 19, 26, 29, 31 (note: October 19 is reserved for St. Augustine students)
November 1, 2, 5, 14, 15, 19 (dates blocked in preparation for/during Thanksgiving Break)
December 6, 7, 14, 18-31 (dates blocked in preparation for/during Christmas Break)

If a specific school requests a visit day for its students, we will post it here.

Please note: Days during which middle schools are closed fill up very quickly. The Administration of Mount de Sales reserves the right to add or remove blocked days.
