Shadow Information

Shadow days are some of our favorite days at St. Pius X. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to schedule any shadow days at this time. Please check back for updates. We will be in communication with our local partner schools should the status of shadow days change. 

A shadow day is the best way for a prospective student to explore what it is like to be a golden lion. They are matched with a host student, attend academic classes, eat lunch in our cafeteria, and go on a school tour led by our Director of Admissions. Shadow day sign up is through Ravenna and only available to students in the eighth grade or older. The day runs from 8:30am to 1:15pm. We designate some shadow days for specific schools sending a large number of their 8th grade students in order to minimize disruption to their academic calendar.  

Attire: We ask that students wear their current school uniform if applicable. Otherwise, please have them attend in business casual attire.  

Materials & Lunch: In case your student attends a class where they are taking a test or quiz, we ask that shadow students bring a book with them. We provide lunch! Students will choose from the menu in the cafeteria. 

Parent Coffee: We welcome parents to stay for an info session and coffee with our administrators starting around 8:30am in the cafeteria. This is an optional and informal event, but it is a great opportunity to hear more about St. Pius X and ask questions in a smaller group setting.
