Schedule a Shadow Date

Shadowing is a great way for prospective students to experience a day at St. Dominic High School and see if we fit their academic and social needs. We would love to have you on campus for a visit.

How long does the day last?
Due to our block schedule, most students should plan on spending the entire day with us to get an accurate feel for the learning environment. However, shorter visits may be arranged. Note to parents: We encourage you to pick up your student around 2:30 pm to avoid dismissal traffic. Students may stay until 2:50 if necessary. Please indicate your preferred time when scheduling.

Can my parents visit St. Dominic?
Yes! We are happy to provide personal tours to parents interested in St. Dominic. Request a tour when you schedule a shadow visit and we will schedule a tour at a time that is convenient for you.
