Tour Opportunities

What better way to learn about Bishop Gorman than with a tour by one of our Admission team members? Your tour will last approximately 1 hour. Parents and students are both encouraged, but not required, to take the tour.  Please create an account to sign up. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Shadow Day Parent Tour is the same as the general tour. 

Shadow Day Visits

This program is reserved for 8th grade students or high school students interested in attending Bishop Gorman.  You must submit an application to sign up for Shadow Day. 

This program is designed to give your child a feel for Bishop Gorman life (open to current 8th grade students or high school students interested in transferring to Bishop Gorman). Your student will attend classes and lunch with a Bishop Gorman student host.

If your student knows someone at Bishop Gorman, they are welcome to request to shadow him/her on the Shadow Day form. Otherwise, your student will be paired with a Bishop Gorman student with similar interests (i.e. activities, sports). Sibling shadows are also permitted.

If your child attends one of the BGHS Partner Schools, we automatically schedule a date for the entire 8th grade class. Click here to see the  BGHS Partner School Shadow Schedule.

Open House

Selecting the best educational environment for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make as a parent. As you consider high school options that will foster success for your child, we invite you to attend our annual Open House on Sunday, October 21, 2018, from 1:00pm – 3:00pm.

We encourage families with students in the 5th – 8th grades to attend, giving insight to the importance of working hard in middle school and the opportunity to explore high school programs of interest.

Join our mailing list here and we will mail you the Open House program prior to the event.
