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 may not be finalized, so we won’t ask you to pick a shadow date just yet.

In order to provide the best possible shadow experience for 8th graders, beginning August 3, we will ask you to pre-register using the link below. We will collect parent and 8th grader contact information, as well as each 8th grader’s academic and co-curricular activity interests. 

After September 1, we will email those that pre-registered a link to officially sign up for a specific virtual Shadow Experience date.

Registered 8th graders will be assigned a shadow guide. Each shadow guide will contact her 8th grade shadower 1-2 days in advance of the shadow date to introduce herself and answer any questions the 8th grader might have prior to her shadow date. On the morning of the shadow experience day, parents will receive an email with links that will guide their 8th grader through her shadow experience. The links, provided by CJA, will provide each 8th grader an inside look at four CJA classes that interest her. The email will also contain instructions and a link for a Zoom call that the 8th grader will take part in later that evening. During the Zoom call, she will meet current CJA students and fellow 8th graders, and learn more about Cor Jesu. In addition, we will be sharing the link to our virtual tour for parents and 8th graders to view.

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.
