8th Grade Student Shadow Days

Engage Yourself Through Another Student’s Eyes

A shadow day is an opportunity for an 8th-grade student to be paired with a current Kelly Bulldog. Each student will attend classes, activities, and other various exercises just as if he or she were a Kelly student. Each partner school is scheduled to shadow on a particular day set in conjunction with the Director of Admissions. The visit includes:

  • Welcome session in the Centennial Complex

  • Walking tour of the school with your paired partner

  • Attending classes

  • Lunch is provided by the school

  • Q&A sessions with our coaches and players for interested students

  • Question forum at the end of the day

Any student not currently enrolled in a partner school is encouraged to schedule his or her own day. Shadow days are offered Wednesdays only.

Personal Tour

Experience MKCHS For Yourself

With busy lives, we know our dates don’t often align with your plans. For this reason, we offer you the chance to have a personal tour of the school that fits into your schedule. The walking tour of the school typically lasts for half an hour depending on your needs and questions.

To schedule a tour, please contact our Director of Admissions. Tours are only scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 p.m.
