Student Shadow Days

Student visits are a critical part of the application process. Students spend a full day in the classroom with their current grade level of peers. Each prospective student is paired with a grade level buddy for the day. The student visit allows your son to get a feel for Saint Edmond’s, and provides an opportunity for faculty and staff to observe how best to meet the needs of your son. Full-day ‘shadows’ are only offered to official applicants of 1st through 8th grade. For JK and K candidates, the Admissions department will arrange a time for the student to spend time in the classroom, usually no longer than two hours. Parents may not stay with students during the visit. Please contact the Admission Office to arrange a student visit.
