8th Grade Shadow Experience

    • Shadow Day 2020 Logo

We want to meet you!

Our hope is to welcome 8th graders to campus later this semester, but until we can do so safely, our shadow experience will be virtual. We're working hard to find ways to showcase all that Cor Jesu has to offer.

We understand that plans for your 8th grade school year are evolving, so we’re giving you the chance to pre-register for your shadow experience first and then pick your shadow date at your convenience.
In order to provide the best possible shadow experience for 8th graders, we ask you to pre-register using the Step 1 link below. This allows us to collect parent and 8th grader contact information, as well as each 8th grader’s academic and co-curricular activity interests so that we can match your daughter with a sophomore shadow guide who can best answer her questions.

Beginning Sept.1, after you complete the pre-registration form, you may use the Step 2 link below to select your specific virtual Shadow Experience date. You will not have to enter your daughter’s interests again.  

After you select a shadow date, your daughter will be assigned a sophomore shadow guide. Each shadow guide will contact her 8th grade shadower 1-2 days before the shadow date to introduce herself and answer any questions the 8th grader might have prior to her shadow date. At 7 p.m., the evening of your selected shadow date, your daughter will join a 15 – 30 minute Zoom “Charger Chat” with current students and fellow 8th graders. On the “Charger Chat,” your daughter will see her sophomore shadow guide and hear from upperclassmen who are Admissions Ambassadors. Your daughter does not need to prepare anything before the “Charger Chat,” but she is welcome to have any questions about CJA ready. We are excited to bring the spirit of CJA to your daughter!

If we are able to invite 8th graders on campus, 8th grade parents will be notified with additional instructions. Thank you for your understanding during these unexpected times.
