8th Grade Shadow Days - fall 2023
You’re invited to see and experience DePaul College Prep for yourself - observe academics in the classroom, meet new friends and peers with similar interests, and learn about DePaul Prep's exciting clubs and sports teams.
Starting September 12th, 8th grade students are welcome to shadow one of our current students on select dates throughout the 1st semester. Due to high demand, we can welcome no more than 30 students on each of those days on a first come - first served basis.
We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
We kindly request that Shadow Days are scheduled at least 72 hours in advance of the requested date. Should you need to reschedule, please email email@example.com. Dates and availability subject to change.
How it works
You may request to shadow a student that you know personally or will be paired with a DePaul Prep student that shares common interests. While we try our best to accommodate all shadow requests, we cannot guarantee you will be matched with your requested student based on daily schedules.
Shadow students will be provided lunch (pizza, drink, and dessert) - please note any dietary allergies/restrictions when registering. Students may also bring their own lunch if preferred.
Please send a book/magazine/reading material with your student in the off-chance they are involved in a class that is testing.
Students in attendance for a Shadow Day must be dropped off no later than 7:30 am at our SOUTH entrance (3300 N. Campbell) and should be picked up at 1:20 pm in the same location.
