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 freshman at Rockhurst High School!
Participants in the Visit Program accompany one of our freshmen through his daily schedule of classes. Lunch is on us! The hours are 7:50 a.m. to 3:10 p.m.
To schedule a shadow visit today, contact Tara Hall, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some comments by the eighth grade students about their day at The Rock:
"I felt like I was already a student at the school."
"I was most impressed with the coordination between students, teachers and iPads."
"Every student seemed to want me to join Rockhurst because it is a great school."
"The teachers were very intelligent and taught in a fun way."
"The classroom environment was a mix between fun and learning."
"I was most impressed with how considerate students were to me."
"My ambassador was very helpful, funny and answered all of my questions."
"Everyone was super friendly and would say hello to me, and that made me feel welcome."
"I was so impressed with how close all of the students and teachers are here."
Visit Program Dress Code
We ask that all visitors comply with our dress code, which is a collared shirt, nice slacks (no jeans or cargo pants, khakis are fine) and dress shoes. If you do not own a pair of dress shoes at this time, please do not go out and buy a pair, just wear nice tennis shoes. No hooded sweatshirts or full zip sweaters or jackets are allowed to be worn during the day. Quarter-zip sweaters or pullovers are acceptable.
Where to Meet
All visitors are asked to meet outside of the Office of Admission and Financial Aid, which is located just east of the chapel. We encourage you to use the entrance off of the circle drive, and the receptionist will direct you to us. Please have your son bring a book to read in case his Ambassador has a test in one of his classes.
