Shadow Program, October-March

Our Shadow Program is designed for prospective 8th grade students interested in attending Salesian College Preparatory. This program provides prospective students an opportunity to experience Salesian College Preparatory student life for a day (8:30am-2:00pm). Prospective students are paired with a Salesian student ambassador. The 8th grade student "shadows" the ambassador(s) by accompanying him/her to all classes and activities. A snack and lunch are provided.

Shadow Visits are the best way to experience Salesian College Prep. We encourage you to take this unique opportunity to participate in classes, socialize with students, interact with our faculty and enjoy all that we have to offer.
