What to Expect During Your Shadow Experience

Breakfast Club

  • Your scheduled session will begin at 7:20 a.m. in the Bishop Chatard Cafeteria. Please drop off your student at Door #10 (athletic entrance on the north end of the back paved parking lot) where he/she will meet their shadow host.
  • Shadowing begins with a complimentary breakfast! This includes breakfast items, juice, and water.
  • You will be paired with a shadow host for your visit. Shadow hosts are students who have applied and been approved for this important responsibility. We will do our best to match each prospective student with a BCHS student who has similar classes and interests. We cannot guarantee a specific host, if requested, will be available.
  • Dress for shadowing is “school-type attire.” (Please no jeans, sweatshirts, sweatpants or t-shirts.) Appropriate attire includes khaki or black pants, shirts with collars or sweaters. Current school uniforms can also be worn.
  • We ask that all cell phones and all electronic devices be left at home. If you must bring a cell phone, please keep it in a bag or pocket.
  • The shadowing session ends at 11:30 a.m. Students will need to be picked up at the St. Benedict Center (the small building directly south of the main building). Please note, this is a different location from the morning drop-off..
  • If you cannot make your scheduled shadow session, please notify Mrs. Aruta as soon as possible.

Contact Karen Aruta, Enrollment Manager, at karuta@bishopchatard, or 317-251-1451, ext. 2234 with questions.
