The Shadow Program provides each applicant the opportunity to spend a day at Saint John's High School. Select dates are currently available to reserve beginning in December through the month of April. The visit is designed to give prospective students the chance to experience Saint John's by attending a full day of classes as well as meet and 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 2023 must have taken the Placement Test, submitted an application and completed the shadow program information form in order to participate. Students considering a transfer to Saint John's are welcome to participate in the shadow program as well. The Placement Test is not required for transfer students however an application to Saint John's and the shadow program information form must be submitted prior to a scheduled shadow visit.
Students will be matched based on similar academic profiles and extracurricular interests. A request may be made to shadow a particular student, although it can't be guaranteed.
