Shadow Visits

St. Lucy’s Priory High School invites 8th grade students to participate in our Shadow Visit Program to experience firsthand what it is like to be a St. Lucy’s Regent. During a Shadow Visit, an 8th grader is paired with a Regent Ambassador who serves as their student guide. They will attend classes, meet teachers and students, have lunch, and take a campus tour. We do our best to match a student up with a Regent Ambassador who shares similar interests.
