At Marist High School, we believe experiencing our students, teachers, and campus is the best way to get to know us. On a shadow day, students will tour the school, attend classes with a freshman or sophomore, and enjoy lunch. It's an interactive day that truly gives prospective students insight into life at Marist.
During the fall, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are invited to experience Marist through the Fridays at Marist shadow program.
Dates: Friday's September 16th - December 2nd. Please note, Marist is out of session on Friday, October 7th. We will be offering a Monday at Marist on October 10th.
Registration: Pre-registration is required and weekly capacity is limited to allow us to safely welcome visiting students. Parents please register online.
Permission Form: In addition to registering online, each visiting student is required to bring this permission form signed by a parent. Visiting students should be aware of their grammar school’s policy on shadow days.
Arrival Time: Students should arrive at 8 AM and enter at the Main Office entrance at the west end of the building. Students will be there to greet you. Parents should note that the school day begins at 8 AM. If your child is receiving a ride from a current Marist student or parent, it is okay to arrive a few minutes early. It is recommended that students arrive at 8 AM so campus traffic will be manageable.
Dismissal Time: The Fridays at Marist program will end at 2:15 PM. Marist regular dismissal time is 2:40 PM. If your child is receiving a ride home form a current Marist student or parent, it is okay to stay until dismissal.
Attire: Students should dress casually and neat. Friday's are a dress down spirit day for Marist students. Visiting students are welcome to wear Marist apparel.
Lunch: Visiting students will be our guest for lunch. If there are any special dietary needs, please email us in advance.
