Shadow a Student

Shadow days are open to all current 8th-grade prospective students. Students are strongly encouraged to experience our school firsthand by shadowing a current Cristo Rey student. Our Student Ambassadors are eager to share their experience with you!

Shadowing at Cristo Rey gives eighth-grade candidates the opportunity to:

  • participate in college-preparatory classes
  • eat lunch with the Cristo Rey Ambassadors and their classmates
  • meet Cristo Rey faculty and staff
  • meet with the Admissions Staff

Shadow visits occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 am – 2:45 pm, November through February. 
You must register using the link below or call the Admissions office to attend.

Please note that all prospective students must follow the Cristo Rey dress code and disciplinary code while on campus. Prospective students should dress as follows: khaki/dress pants (no jeans or leggings allowed), closed shoes (tennis shoes are not allowed), oxford type shirt, sweater or vest (in case of cold weather).

As part of their Shadow Day all prospective students will join their student ambassador at lunch. Students will not be allowed to go out of the school building to purchase food, although they are welcome to bring their own lunch if they prefer.
