Doing a Shadow Day helped me figure out what I want from a high school.
Trey '21

The Shadow Day helped my son compare JSerra to other schools we were looking at. After the Shadow Day, we understood why families come here.

Visit JSerra

We invite your whole family to come visit us and find out if JSerra is right for you! Experience the Lion spirit through one of the many opportunities we offer to explore JSerra.

Shadow Program

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a JSerra Lion? The best way to discover what life is like at JSerra is to attend a Shadow Day! On a Shadow Day, we will match your student with a current JSerra student who shares their interests. Your student will have the opportunity to ask questions, tour our beautiful campus, attend classes, and gain insight into the student experience at JSerra — not to mention lunch from the Lion's Bistro on us!

What to Expect

Select a date

All prospective students entering grades 7 through 11 are invited to participate in a Shadow Day. Shadowing is available most Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays. Please check our calendar to select the date that works best for you. Students must be registered 4 days prior to the requested date.

Schedule Your Shadow DAY

Review Attire

Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately with nice dress pants or shorts and a polo shirt (boys) or a modest dress or pants with a blouse or polo shirt (girls). If your student is currently attending a private school, the uniform of that school may be worn. If you sign up for a special Shadow Day during a spirit week or special dress day, your student may participate in the special dress. We will contact you directly with details about special dress.

Check In

On your Shadow Day, please arrive no later than 7:50 a.m. in the JSerra Pavilion (the gym across the street from main campus) as we will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. Students will come to the gym to sign-in, receive a guest badge, and a free lunch pass at the Lion Bistro. We will have a brief introduction and a special tour for parents.

Students will be placed into groups and will rotate through different classrooms and interact with our students and faculty. If you want to experience JSerra as a student then this is a perfect day for you! Please be sure to RSVP today!


Campus Tour

Let us host your family for a personal tour of our beautiful campus! Comfortable shoes are recommended as you will have the opportunity to visit both our academic and athletic sides of campus. The tour typically lasts one hour.


Pride Reception

Pride Receptions are designed specifically for prospective families and are hosted in the homes of current parents. You will interact directly with parents, students, teachers and administrators in an informal, family-like atmosphere. You’ll find no question is off limits! By the end of the reception, you will come away with a true feeling of what our JSerra family is all about.



Would you like to spend a day practicing for the HSPT exam? Come to JSerra and take the mock HSPT to prepare you for the big day. The questions from the mock exam are very similar to the actual test and they even follow the same time frame requirements. Students will be able to leave with the test and they will be emailed the answers a few weeks later. The results from the Mock exam will not impact your admission in any way. All 6th-8th grade students are invited! Please sign up below.


Information Night

Join us for an information session on JSerra Catholic High School! You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about our rigorous academics, strong faith, engaging magnets, and fantastic athletic and arts programs. We will also offer campus tours and you’ll get to meet some of our students. This is a great way to get a leg up on the admissions process if you have a 7th grade student. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Enjoy our next Admissions Information Night from 5:00-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 27 in the Center Room.
