SHAdow For A Day Program

SHAdow For A Day Program

There is no better way to "try SHA on for size" than to spend a day here on campus and experience what it's like to be a SHA student.

What is a typical SHAdow for a Day?

After being welcomed on campus by a member of the Admissions team, prospective students will be paired with a current SHA student to “experience” a typical day-in-the-life at SHA. 

You will meet many of your future classmates, attend a number of classes following the schedule of your host, enjoy lunch with the SHA girls (it's on us!) and start to “See Yourself at SHA!”

8th Grade Girls are invited to SHAdow from September through February

6th and 7th Grade Girls are invited to SHAdow from March through June

Need Another Look?

Do you want to experience the vibrant atmosphere, diverse opportunities, and academic excellence that Sacred Heart has to offer? We invite you to join us for a Take a Another Look Day.

This is your chance to see if Sacred Heart is the perfect fit for you. Don't miss out on this opportunity to get a comprehensive look at what makes SHA a fantastic place to learn, grow, and excel!

The calendar is open to all accepted students, transfer students and even those who didn’t apply.

On the day of your SHAdow, here are some important things to keep in mind:

  • SHAdow Day begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m.
  • Drop-Off and Pick-Up take place around the back of the school by the Pavilion Entrance (Double-Glass Doors).
  • Dress code: please wear a dress or a skirt and blouse or your private school uniform.
  • Lunch: Our SHAdows join our students in SHA's cafeteria.  They are given a lunch voucher to purchase food so that they can experience lunch the way a SHA student does.  If you prefer, you are also welcome to bring your brown bag from home.
  • If you have any questions about your SHAdow appointment please email [email protected] or call (516) 483-7383, ext. 214. For general admissions questions, please contact [email protected] or call (516) 483-7383, ext. 209.
