Notre Dame College Prep invites junior high students to spend a day at our school. All Shadows will receive the following:

  • A real experience of a typical day at Notre Dame
    • Students should arrive at 8:15 am and check in with the receptionist at the main entrance
    • The Shadow day normally runs from 8:35 am to 1:30 pm
    • For students who wish to stay the duration of the day until 2:40 pm, please notify Mrs. LaVerne Bontempo when you arrive
  • All Shadows will receive a lunch voucher, so Shadows do NOT need to bring a lunch the day they shadow
  • All Shadows will be set up with a current Notre Dame student of similar interests
  • Notre Dame Dress Code is required (Solid color collared polo, Solid color "Docker" style pants, gym shoes are okay)

8th Graders:

We invite 7th grade students to Shadow in the second semester starting in April. Please contact Mrs. LaVerne Bontempo at 847.779.8615 to set up your Shadow day.
