Shadow Day

Fall 2020
Please Note:
Our first priority this fall is the health and safety of our students, families, faculty, staff, and visitors.  With this interest in mind, we are not currently offering in-person shadow days.  We encourage all of our prospective students to participate in our virtual ambassador days (available under "Fall Admissions Events") or to come for a tour after school hours and see what MC has to offer.
Please reach out to our admissions team at for more information regarding these other opportunities.
Be a Morris Catholic Student for a Day!

Interested in visiting Morris Catholic? Want to know what a day in the life of a real live MC freshman is like? Curious about the quality of the cafeteria food?

Well, search no further... The Morris Catholic Advancement Office offers eighth grade students the opportunity to spend a day shadowing a freshman student through his/her school schedule. Sit in on classes, meet faculty and staff, tour the campus, and yes, even experience a real high school cafeteria lunch.  

At this time, we are unable to host our traditional Shadow Days due to social distancing restrictions and recommendations from our Diocese. We will have more information about this a little later in the fall. In the meantime, we can still host in-person campus tours, and we will have a series of virtual and in-person admissions events. Visit the Open House section of our website, or contact for more information. 

Things to Know for your Shadow Day at MC: 
At this time we cannot host our traditional shadow days, but when they are able to start up again, this is the typical schedule: 
  • Please arrive by 7:50 am, as our classes begin at 8 am. Enter through our main entrance doors, and you will be directed to the Advancement Office. 
  • At the Advancement Office, you will meet your Student Ambassador, who will guide you through your day. You will be matched to a Student Ambassador who shares some of the same interests with you, has the classes you wish to see, and is in the grade you are applying for. If you have a special request of a Student Ambassador you would like to Shadow, please send an email to our Admissions Office at 
  • We will provide you with a free lunch pass so you can enjoy our cafeteria. If you prefer to bring food, you are more than welcome to. 
  • Please dress appropriately for a Catholic high school. If you have a school uniform, you may wear it. If you do not, please dress appropriately as if you were attending Church. 
  • Pick-up is back in the Advancement Office at 2:00 pm. An attendance note can be provided to you for your school, if needed.
