Shadow Visits and Tours

Shadow Visits

The best way to discover what it is like to be a St. Mary's student is to spend a day shadowing a current student. We invite eighth graders and transfer applicants to shadow from October through February. Seventh graders are invited to shadow in April, and may return again as eighth graders. We can only accommodate a limited number of guests on each visit day and spots fill up quickly.

Schedule your Shadow Visit

This year, you will have a choice to visit on a traditional school day, OR join us for a special interest visit day. On a special interest day, visitors will participate in a class or activity designed to explore a specific program of interest, in addition to seeing two regular classes. Currently, we are offering the following special interest days:

Theatre | CLOSED
Choir | CLOSED
Athletics | CLOSED
Robotics | CLOSED
Visual Arts | CLOSED
Leadership | November 19
Computer Science | December 4
Faith | December 12

Dance | January 9

Can't make one of the dates above? We have many other school days to choose from, be sure to list your interests in the online form, and we will do our best to match you with a host who shares your interest.

St. Mary's Academy is committed to diversity and inclusivity. Let us know if you would like your daughter to shadow a student who belongs to a particular cultural affinity group at SMA (i.e. Women of Color in Action Association, Arab Student Union, Asian/Pacific Islander Club, Black Student Union, First Nations, Immigrant Student Union, Jewish Student Union, Latino Student Union, and Queer Student Union). We will do our best to match her with a host from the requested affinity group.

Parent Tours

The Office of Admissions offers Parent Tours for those who wish to learn more about our community and see the school in action. Tours are conducted during school hours so parents can more fully experience our educational environment. Tours typically run from 8:30-9:30 am and occasionally from 10:00-11:00 am. Schedule your tour online in the Admissions Portal.
