Panther For A Day
If you are considering applying to Prep, you are most welcome to visit Prep for the school day through our Panther for a Day program. Visits take place from late September to mid-December. You will be paired with a Prep freshman or sophomore host and attend classes and lunch with them. These visits are optional and do not impact admissions decisions. However, we highly encourage you to make an appointment, and come see what happens on a typical day at Prep! For questions about Panther for a Day visits, please contact Jordan Alcantara.
Below is information to know about your visit day:
ARRIVAL time is 8:40 AM. Please come to the Admissions Office on the 1st floor of St. Ignatius Hall. Your parent/guardian will need to find street parking. Out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that parked cars do not block driveways.
BRING a book in case your student host has a test. You are welcome to bring your lunch, or we will treat you to lunch in our cafeteria! You will be in and out of buildings, so please bring a jacket. Please wear appropriate school attire; jeans are fine.
DEPARTURE time is 2:50 PM. Drivers should wait for visitors on 11th Ave East in front of St. Ignatius Hall. Drivers are also welcome to come inside to the Admissions office in St. Ignatius Hall.
