The applicant accompanies his host through that day's schedule and becomes familiar with the campus and academic programs. It is also an opportunity to meet some of the students and faculty. Sign-ups for the Class of 2023 begin online Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018.
Shadow Days are typically Monday, Tuesday and Thursday beginning the week of Sept. 10 through early December. We have a handful of Shadow Days in January as well. We do not do Shadow Days on Wednesday or Friday because of a modified school schedule.
Guests of the “Bronco-for-a-Day” shadow program must be in eighth grade or above (transfer student applicants will be able to shadow the second semester). Shadowing is not a mandatory part of the application process, but it is a great opportunity to learn more about the Brophy community.
We assign freshman shadow day hosts from our Diplomatic Corps based on interests (e.g. sports, music, activities, etc.) or middle school; or you can request a Brophy freshman you know. (All hosts are freshmen.)
Please check in with the Office of Admissions when you arrive on campus. Parents are not required to sign their son in or out. Your son can come to campus with another Brophy student or with a carpool if you like, but he must check in with the Office of Admissions.
A sack lunch or lunch money. Food service is provided in Harper Great Hall where students may purchase pizza, sandwiches, snacks and drinks. Lunch costs vary, but approximately $6-$7 for lunch and break is sufficient. Visiting students must use cash to pay for lunch - debit cards are not accepted.
Also, please bring a book to read in case a teacher gives a test during class.
