"Shadowing" is a program 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. If your child attends another school, please click HERE to schedule a shadow day (must be submitted at least 3 days in advance).
The dress code for shadow students is very similar to that of the Bishop Gorman students:
Girls - Acceptable Dress Blue, white, or orange polo shirt with Khaki color pants or shorts and shoes with covered toes and heels or tennis shoes.
Girls - Unacceptable Dress Denim of any kind (i.e. jeans, jean skirt); low or revealing necklines or bare midriffs; T-shirts; Facial piercings (other than earrings) or visible tattoos; sandals or flip-flops.
Boys - Acceptable Dress Khaki color pants or shorts with blue, white, or orange polo shirt and shoes with covered toes and heels such as tennis shoes or other closed toe shoe with a back.
Boys - Unacceptable Dress Denim of any kind (i.e. jeans, jean shirt); T-shirts; excessively baggy attire; facial piercings (other than earrings); visible tattoos; sandals or flip-flops.
PLEASE NOTE: Visiting students will be sent home if they are not wearing acceptable attire.
