Fridays at Marist Shadow Program


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, 8th grade students are invited to experience Marist through the Fridays at Marist shadow program.

  • 6th and 7th grade students will be invited to shadow in the spring.

  • This will allow us to best comply with current COVID protocols.

Dates: Friday, September 17th through Friday, December 3rd (an additional shadow day will be offered on Columbus Day, Monday, October 11th)

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 between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. and enter at the Main Office entrance at the west end of the building. Students will be there to greet you.

Dismissal Time: The Fridays at Marist program will end at 1:45 p.m.  Students will be dismissed from the Main Office entrance only.

Parents should note that Marist’s regular school dismissal is at 2:50 p.m. If your child is receiving a ride home from a current Marist student or parent, your child will be in the Academic Resource Center (ARC). It would be best if current students meet visiting students in the ARC at the end of the school day.

Attire: Students should dress casually and neat. All students must wear a mask.

Lunch: Visiting students will be our guest for lunch. If there are any special dietary needs, please email us in advance.
