Please note that if you registered prior to 9:15 a.m. on August 1st, your confirmation email may show the date of your visit as September 18.  This was an error in the email and not in your actual registration date. We are using a new system this year for registration and are still working out a few glitches.  Please excuse the error and thank you for your patience as we work to learn this new system.  If you have any questions about your shadow date, please feel free to contact us.

FAQs

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: Who is permitted to visit at Cor Jesu? 

    We invite students to visit in the fall of their 8th grade year. We do not permit 7th grade students to visit at this time.
  • Q: When do visit days take place? 

    Visit days for 8th graders begin September 18, 2017 and run through November 10, 2017.
  • Q: How and when do I schedule my visit day? 

    Our online Visit Request Form will go live on August 1, 2017. You may schedule your appointment via this form any time after this date. We ask that you please try to schedule your visit at least 7 days in advance. Reservations are made on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do have a limit of 25 students visiting per day, due to classroom space and teacher to student ratio, so please schedule early to reserve your date. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling preference; however, please have an alternative date(s) in mind in the event we are booked. We are grateful for your cooperation and understanding regarding this policy.
  • Q: Are visits a half day or a full day?

    Cor Jesu runs on a block schedule, which means we have four 85-minute classes per day. For this reason, we do not schedule any half-day visits, as this would not allow for the fullest classroom experience.
  • Q: Who will I be paired with for my visit day at Cor Jesu? May I request someone?

    8th graders are paired with current sophomores, as they have been at Cor Jesu for a full year and are familiar with the campus. When scheduling your visit, we make sure to ask for your favorite subjects and hobbies, so we can do our best to match you with a CJ student who shares those same interests. Requests may be made for a specific shadow guide only if she is a member of the Student Ambassador Program or a family member. 
  • Q: What do I wear on my visit day?

    School uniform or school appropriate attire is suggested for visit days. We do request that students not wear jeans, sweatpants or shorts (unless otherwise indicated upon reservation, i.e. Dress Down Days/Spirit Days).
  • Q: When and where do I go for check-in and pick up?

    Check-in for visitors will be in the new student commons lobby. Check-in is at 8:30 a.m., Pick-up will be in the main office at 2:40 p.m. (unless otherwise indicated upon reservation, i.e. Early Dismissal Days). Thursdays at Cor Jesu are 1:40 dismissal days throughout the school year, so if your date falls on a Thursday, the pick-up time would be at 1:40.  Please follow the signs located around the campus.
  • Q: Should I bring anything with me?

    We will provide you with a free lunch from our cafeteria, as well as a free drink coupon. You are welcome to bring a water bottle for the school day if you would like. We encourage visitors not to bring books to read, homework, iPads, etc. We feel these will be distractions from the classroom and social experience of your visit. We will provide all the materials you need for a fun filled day!
