Crusader for a Day Shadow Program - Registration will open in September 2024

Our Crusader for a Day Shadow Program offers young men a unique opportunity to experience life as a St. Paul’s student. Through the program, prospective students will be paired with a current St. Paul's student, attend a morning session of classes, tour the school, and finish with lunch in our cafeteria. While it is not a requirement for admission, this program is designed specifically for students who may be undecided about attending St. Paul’s.

The Crusader for a Day program runs weekly on Wednesdays, from October to March, beginning at 8:55 a.m. and ending approximately at 12:15 p.m. Spaces are limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

You must register in advance.

A confirmation email will be sent to families one week in advance of your booking.
