Shadow Program

The Shadow Program offers prospective students applying to grade 9 the opportunity to spend a day on campus and experience Saint John's High School. Visitors will attend class with a current freshman, tour the campus with an upper classman, enjoy a complimentary lunch in Salem Student Commons and meet as well as interact with teachers and students. Although a shadow visit is not mandatory, approximately 80% of applicants shadow each year. 

Students applying to the Class of 2024 must have submitted an application and completed a shadow program information form in Ravenna in order to participate. Students interested in transferring to Saint John's are welcome to participate as well and should contact the Admissions Office to arrange a visit. Details regarding middle school visits will be announced at a later date. 

Select shadow dates in November 2019 through March 2020 are currently available to reserve online in Ravenna. Click here for instructions on how to register for a shadow day in Ravenna.
