Friday 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. 

‚ÄčDates: Marist will offer 10 Friday at Marist opportunities in the fall for 6th-8th graders. Those dates are:

  • Friday, September 22nd
  • Friday, September 29th
  • Friday, October 6th (Homecoming)

  • Friday, November 3rd
  • Friday, November 10th

Registration: Pre-registration is required and weekly capacity is limited to allow us to safely welcome visiting students. Registration for Fall Shadow Days will open Wednesday, September 6th.

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.
