Marian Catholic invites both students and parents to get to know the school and culture. Whether that's through an open house or a shadow day, the focus is on providing families with ways to experience Marian Catholic that fits them. Marian Catholic cannot wait to meet future Spartans and their families! 

Open House

Get an on-site overview of Marian Catholic programs in academics, preparation for college, and possibilities for involvement, leadership, and service. Families have the opportunity to talk to current parents, meet with coaches and players, tour our campus with students and faculty, and hear our band. 
Open House I - October 3, 2023 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Open House II - November 5, 2023 1 - 3 p.m.

Shadow Days

7th and 8th-grade students have the opportunity to shadow a current Marian Catholic student any full day of school. 8th graders can shadow during the 1st semester, and 7th graders can shadow during the 2nd semester. 
The first day an 8th-grade student can shadow is September 11th. Shadow Days for 8th grade students will not be available on October 3, 11, 12, 13 and 24 & November 1, 15, 22, 23, and 24.  The last day of the semester an 8th-grade student can shadow is December 1.
Students can request a specific Marian Catholic student to be their host or we can match them up with a student who has similar interests. Shadows walk through their Marian host's schedule (periods 2 to 6) and receive a free lunch. Registration for shadow days is only available online. PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST A 48-HOUR NOTICE WHEN SCHEDULING A SHADOW DAY.
Student shadows should report to the main entrance on Ashland Avenue at 8:20 a.m. and their day will be over at 1:30 p.m. We ask that you dress like a Spartan. This includes a collared shirt, khaki/dress pants (preferred), or nice jeans (no rips/tears), and gym shoes are acceptable. Lunch will be provided for you in our Leadership Center/Cafeteria.
No cell phones are allowed during school hours. 

Super Shadow Day 

These days are no different than a normal shadow day, other than they are held on national holidays when most grammar schools are not in classes.
