Shadow a Student

So, you think you might want to attend JPII, but you’re not sure.  Well, now’s your chance to get the inside scoop on a typical day inside JPII!  JPII has pioneered a “shadow” day specifically designed to give prospective students a first hand “feel” by attending a full day academic schedule.

Bring your best friend, and you can do it together!  Here’s what an ordinary shadow day looks like:

  • Arrive at JPII by 7:45 a.m. and meet your JPII Student Shadow Ambassador.  Usually, JPII will choose a JPII student for you to shadow, but sometimes you might have a friend who is a current student at JPII.
  • Attend a full day of academic classes until 3:10 p.m.  This includes eating lunch with your Shadow Ambassador along with the entire JPII student body!
  • Participation in the classroom is encouraged and expected.  You will see and experience first hand extraordinary instruction by the JPII faculty.
  • Dress for success and wear gender appropriate uniform type clothing.  You can also wear your current school uniform.  No jeans, t-shirts, or shorts, please.
  • During your visit to JPII, individual contact with a teacher, coach, or academic department head may be arranged.
  • Shadow days are intended for students who are considering enrollment at JPII for the next academic school year.

Do you or a friend want to spend a day in the life at JPII?  Here’s what you do.  Contact the Admissions Office at (615) 822-2375 or email Mary Leonard at to arrange an exact date.  Please allow at least 2 days advance notice.
