Lion's Shadow Visits

Lion's Shadow Visits

Thank you for being so interested in Cardinal Ritter College Prep! Shadow visits for the 2023-2024 will begin September 25, 2023.

Shadow visits are the best way for a student to get a personal perspective of Ritter's exceptional education experience. Typically, eighth graders shadow in the fall, and seventh graders shadow in the spring. Here's how it works:


  • Please make a shadow appointment at least five days in advance by clicking the button below. 
  • Be sure to schedule your appointment early, as the number of visitors we can accommodate per day is limited.
  • On the day of your visit, you should arrive at the CRCP main office between 8:15 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
  • You will receive a complimentary lunch pass, so there is no need to pack a lunch.
  • Visits are a full day (unless special arrangements have been made); your student ambassador will walk you back to the main office for pick-up at 1:30 p.m.
