Shadow Program

Eighth-grade students are invited to spend a day at Rockhurst. This is a great way for an interested student to experience a day in the life of a student at Rockhurst High School.

Eighth graders in the Shadow Program accompany one of our freshmen through his daily schedule of classes. Transfer students in the Shadow Program accompany a student of the same grade. Lunch is on us! Note: Dietary needs and concerns can be met.
