Experience a Shadow Day

Would you like to know what Saint James School classes are like? Plan to join us on a Monday, Tuesday, or Friday (during the academic year) to find out.

A Shadow Day provides the best and most complete insight into life at Saint James. Your day begins at 7:45 a.m. in the Admission Office where we will welcome you to campus. You will receive a schedule for the day and meet your student host whom you will shadow throughout their academic day. The experience concludes following lunch at around 1:30 p.m.

We also encourage visiting families to stay for our morning Chapel service, to attend a student-led tour, and to enjoy a family-style lunch with us in the Kerfoot Refectory.

To schedule your visit: Please call (301) 733-9330 ext. 3004, or email

Campus Tour

Duration: Approximately two hours

If you are unable to attend a Day of Class, we encourage you to schedule a Campus Tour. During the visit, you will have time to speak with an Admission representative, and enjoy a student-led tour. Visits typically last two hours. Book your tour now: Please call (301) 733-9330 ext. 3004, or email Admissions.
