Fall 2021 Shadowing

St. Joseph’s Academy is thrilled to announce that fall “Shadow Visits” will occur during the school day. In order to experience the Angel spirit first-hand, SJA invites eighth-grade girls in the fall and seventh grade girls in the spring to visit our school. Shadow Visitors will be paired with a current St. Joe student and have the opportunity to tour campus, spend time in our classrooms and meet our teachers. Parents are encouraged to take a one-hour “Parent Tour” once their daughter’s visit begins.

Eighth grade students applying for the 2022-2023 school year are invited to visit St. Joe in the fall of 2021. Our scheduling calendar will be available on August 2nd. Please check back then to schedule your visit!
 
Seventh grade students will be invited to shadow in the spring of 2022.

For more information about shadowing, please contact Mrs. Clare Conners MacConnell '01, Associate Admissions Director, by phone at (314) 394-4319, or by email at cmacconnell@sja1840.org.

  • Q: What are the benefits of shadowing for my daughter?

    The shadowing program is a unique opportunity for prospective students to experience a typical school day as a St. Joe Angel and hear from current St. Joe students. With her Angel Ambassador, each visitor will experience classes and meet our faculty.
  • Q: Is shadowing a half-day or a full day?

    Typically, eighth-grade shadow visits are  from 8:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., and seventh grade shadow visits are from 8:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
  • Q: Is there a dress code for students who visit?

    Visitors may wear their school uniforms, or any school-appropriate clothing (for example, leggings, tennis shoes, etc.). All shadows will receive a lanyard name tag when they arrive, which will identify them as visitors during the school day.
  • Q: How far in advance do I need to call to schedule a shadow visit?

    We recommend that you schedule your visit at least a week in advance. Many days (especially Fridays) do fill up quickly, so the sooner a visit can be scheduled, the better.
  • Q: What if I need to reschedule my daughter’s shadow visit?

    To reschedule your daughter’s shadow visit, please contact Mrs. Clare Conners MacConnell '01, Associate Admissions Director, by email at cmacconnell@sja1840.org or by phone at (314) 394-4319.
  • Q: Does a prospective student shadow a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior?

    Eighth-grade visitors will tour with an Angel Ambassador. Traditionally, an eighth-grade visitor would be paired with a sophomore or a junior Angel Ambassador. A seventh-grade visitor may be paired with a freshman or sophomore Angel Ambassador. If your visiting daughter knows a current St. Joe student that they would like to tour with, you may make that request when you register online.
  • Q: Do I need to accompany my daughter into the school building?

    A parent or other designated adult should accompany your daughter into St. Joe when dropping off and picking up. Parents are encouraged to stay for the “Parent Tour” if time allows. If your daughter rides to school with a current SJA student, she should accompany your daughter to the meeting area in the Shanahan Commons to sign her in and out.
  • Q: Where is drop off and pick up for my daughter for her visit?

    When you pull onto the St. Joe campus, follow the signs for shadow visitor parking and park in the lot in front of the gym. Proceed into the Student Commons to sign in and meet your Student Ambassador.
  • Q: What if there is an emergency while my daughter is visiting St. Joe?

    When you register your daughter for a shadow visit, you will include an emergency contact name and phone number where someone can be reached during the time of her visit.
