Eighth grade students who are interested in attending Gabriel Richard Catholic High School are encouraged to spend a day on campus by enrolling in our Pioneer For A Day Shadow Program.  All requests to shadow must be reviewed and approved by the office of admissions at least two days in advance of the requested date.

What is the Pioneer For A Day Shadow Program?


The Pioneer For A Day Shadow Program offers prospective Pioneers a chance to experience what a typical student's day is like on campus.  Visiting students spend the day attending classes with a current student, getting to know our teaching staff, and sharing time with students during lunch.


How to Schedule a Visit


Shadow visits are by appointment only and reservations are required.


To ensure that a visiting student gets the most out of his or her shadow experience, we make every effort to match each student with a student ambassador who has similar interests or backgrounds.  To enable us to do so, we kindly request that prospective parents fill out and return the shadow request. Once our office receives the request, we will telephone you to confirm the date and answer any questions you may have.


A Typical Shadow Day
