Boys in grades 6-10 are invited to attend and explore the Academy’s junior and senior high college prep program.

Shadow Days are scheduled throughout the school year to give those interested an opportunity to see first-hand the 125-year old Benedictine academy.

Activities for parents include information sessions with some of the administrators and faculty members and campus tours.

Prospective boarders and early arrivals may spend Thursday night before the Shadow Day in a dormitory. Parents’ accommodations are provided in the guest facility on campus. All activities, including overnight stays and meals, are free of charge.
