Shadow Day Program


Current 8th graders are welcome to “shadow” (or follow) one of our Griffin Ambassadors for a day. These Shadow Days will be offered throughout the school year, Tuesday through Friday.  Shadow students will be asked to arrive at school around 8:00 a.m. They will be greeted by their ambassador, issued a temporary laptop, email address and locker for the day, and be given a brief tour of the school. The shadow student will follow our ambassador through their class schedule, including lunch and P.E., and participate in activities, just like they were already a Griffin! Their day will end around 3:15 p.m. with a brief meeting with the principal, along with their parents.

We try to best match each shadow student with a similar student ambassador, so that your student will feel most at home at McGivney. We also limit the number of shadow students to no more than 4 per day, so that they may get a good feel for a typical day at Father McGivney Catholic High School.

If you are interested in having your student “Be a Griffin for a Day”, please fill out the Shadow Day Request Form and fax it to 618-855-9011 or email it admissions@mcgivneygriffins.com and someone will contact you shortly with a date and more information.
