Shadowing at Roncalli Catholic

Do you want to “Shadow” a Roncalli Catholic student?

Any junior high or high school student wishing to spend the day at Roncalli Catholic High School with a current student must have his/her parents contact the Director of Recruitment at least one day prior to the day he/she plans to visit.

Only students with a serious interest in attending Roncalli Catholic will be allowed to visit. The only exception will be if there is an out-of-town visitor staying with a Roncalli Catholic family.

A visitor request form must be signed and completed before a non-Roncalli Catholic student will be allowed in the building. All visitors must report to the office for a visitor pass, once all other formalities have been handled.

Visitors must comply with all rules of conduct in the Roncalli Catholic Student Handbook and must be dressed appropriately (NO jeans, t-shirts or questionable clothing will be allowed). The Director of Recruitment or an Administrator has the right to deny admittance to any visitor or ask the visitor to leave the premises, if any guidelines are violated.

School Contact: Mr. T.J. Orr, Admissions Director, 571-7670 or torr@roncallicatholic.org.
