Shadow Visits

Shadow Visits are a chance for prospective students to attend a few classes with a current Bishop student, ask questions, and see what a real school day is like. These visits are available on select Tuesdays and Fridays from October through April. While open to all prospective students, 8th-grade students are strongly encouraged to attend Freshman for a Day on November 6th in lieu of a Shadow Visit Day as Freshman for a Day will offer a more comprehensive experience.

For more information about any of these events, please email Dr. Cristy McNay or call 805.967.1266, ext. 118. We cannot wait to share our Cardinal spirit with you!

Freshman for a Day - Tuesday, November 6, 2018, 9:00 - 1:30 p.m.

All 8th-grade students are invited to be a Bishop Diego Freshman for a Day! They will attend classes, experience a spirit rally, learn about Bishop academics, activities, athletics, and spirituality, and discover what it means to be a Cardinal! While a Shadow Visit Day will allow the visitor the opportunity to attend regular classes, the Freshman for a Day event will offer this experience and much more, including interactive presentations that focus on academics, activities, spiritual life, and athletics. Our guests will be immersed in our Cardinal spirit through the fun of a spirit rally, teambuilding exercises, a catered lunch with students and faculty, and visits to various classes. Because both the Shadow Visit Day and Freshman for a Day require a visitor to miss school, we understand that both opportunities may not be possible. We do not want to deter your son or daughter from experiencing a shadow visit but highly encourage attendance at Freshman for a Day in lieu of the Shadow Visit Day as we believe it will provide a deeper look at all that Bishop Diego has to offer. RSVPs and permission forms are required to attend this event. 

To RSVP for this event and complete the permission form, please submit an Online Inquiry!
