Your path to Holy Names Starts Here! The Admissions process begins with several ways to experience the vibrant campus life at Holy Names.

Shadow visits are the best way for students to see themselves as part of the Holy Names community. Each visiting student is paired with a Holy Names Ambassador and joins that student for a half day of classes on campus. In addition to experiencing the classroom environment, shadow visits offer the opportunity for each student to engage with our diverse, welcoming student body in order to get a true sense of the full high school experience.

Private campus tours are available upon request and can be scheduled with our Admissions Department. Please contact [email protected] to request a private campus tour or schedule a shadow visit today!
