Shadow a Knight

Shadow a Knight   
All prospective students are encouraged to shadow or participate in a school visit day. Shadowing is a great way to experience a day in the life of a Lexington Catholic student. We believe you will feel right at home and want to make Lexington Catholic your choice for high school. With fewer than 840 students, we are just the right size for students to begin spreading their wings with the assurance of support from our community of faculty, staff and LCHS families.
 
Please CLICK HERE to inquire about shadowing an LCHS student.

 

Here are some important details about the shadow experience you should know:

 

 - Students are welcome September through mid-December and January through mid- May. We do not schedule shadow visits during semester review or final exams weeks.
 - The shadow day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends by 2:00 p.m.  We like for shadow guests to experience a number of engaging classes, and be our guest for lunch.
 - When shadow guests arrive, they should report to the Admissions Office in the school Front Office.
 - Attire should include a collared shirt, dress slacks, shorts, skort, or skirt.
 - The Admissions Office will arrange your guide unless you request someone in particular. We make every effort possible to accommodate any special request (Please note: due to scheduling conflicts and to avoid too much interference with a student's academic efforts, not all requests can be guaranteed).
 - Student guides will be selected according to grade level and similar interests. All 7th and 8th grade guests will be matched with either a freshman or sophomore.


Student Testimonies
We asked students to recall their experience "shadowing" before they enrolled at Lexington Catholic.
 
"It seems like yesterday that I was a frightened, uncertain student looking for a high school home. I was coming from three years of a home-schooling education, and I was apprehensive about returning to the traditional school setting – and then I was given the opportunity to shadow a Lexington Catholic student. When I arrived on campus, my mind was filled with all kinds of questions. How in the world was I going to fit in here? This was a big place filled with a lot of people, and I did not know any of them. I was all anxiety and trepidation about this new step in my life."
                                                                                                            
"Shadowing made all the difference in the world to me! It put to rest my fears about the traditional high school setting: what classes should I take, what should I expect from teachers – and what would they expect of me – and how was I going to find my way around this big place?"

 
"The student I shadowed was so kind and gentle to me as I stumbled along behind her, down the hallways, from class to class. She was so patient and tolerant of my seemingly senseless questions. She made me feel so comfortable – made me feel like I was already a classmate. There I was – a frightened, tentative eighth grader – being embraced, and lovingly shepherded by a total stranger. It was wonderful, incredible! And by the end of my shadowing day, I knew that my transition into high school was going to be a smooth one. I was going to be okay! No longer anxious and uncertain – I knew I wanted to be a part of this warm, welcoming and comfortable community of LCHS."
