Shadow Days

Be an Eagle for the Day!

To experience McDonogh on a first-hand basis, prospective students can spend the day visiting academic classes and eating lunch with a Middle School guide. With the exception of rising fifth graders, all students are hosted in their current grade. (Rising fifth graders shadow with the fifth grade so that they too can experience a Middle School Day).

Shadow Day visits begin in the Admissions Office at 8:20 a.m. and typically end by 2:30 p.m. Shadow Day visits are non-evaluative and are an optional piece of the application process. We offer shadow days from early October until mid January.

If your child is spending the day with us, we will set up his or her admissions interview during the visit day. It is important that we get to know your child and give him or her the opportunity to ask questions regarding McDonogh School.

After completing the application form, you may sign up online or call
443-544-7025 to reserve a place for a Shadow Day visit. Please know that dates fill up quickly, and signing up early is recommended. We will do our best to accommodate your request for a date.
