The "Bronco for a Day" Shadow Program

The applicant accompanies his host through a normal schedule and becomes familiar with the campus, academic programs, and student body. Signups begin online on Wednesday, August 24, 2016. 

Shadow Days are typically Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday beginning the week of September 12 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 our modified school schedule. 

The “Bronco for a Day” shadow program allows prospective students the opportunity to spend a day on campus so that he can make a well-informed decision about Brophy. Guests of the “Bronco for a Day” shadow program must be in 8th grade or above (transfer student applicants may shadow 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.
