Guide to Shadowing

Shadowing is designed to assist students in determining the Catholic high school that will be best for them. Shadowing offers prospective 7th and 8th grade students the opportunity to experience a typical high school schedule of classes and activities. All secondary and elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville support shadowing. The shadowing experience is most successful when all participants follow the common practices and procedures.

Shadowing begins in mid September for 8th grade students and January for 7th grade students. In order to maximize the experience, students are strongly encouraged to shadow before May.

For additional information about the full recruitment process in Catholic schools, please consult the brochure The Archdiocese of Louisville High School Selection Guide. You may also call any Catholic high school or contact Katie Doyle, Archdiocese of Louisville Curriculum Coordinator, at or 448-8581.
