Campus Visit Program

Thank you for your interest in Saint Ignatius College Prep! We encourage interested eighth grade students to spend a day on the Saint Ignatius campus as an "Ignatian for a Day". Each eighth grade student will accompany a current Ignatian and attend class, meet teachers and students, have lunch in the cafeteria and experience a typical day of a Saint Ignatius student.

Campus visits may only be made by students in the eighth grade. Campus Visit Days are available on any regular school day between September 6 and November 17, 2017.

Registration will open August 1, 2017. Click here to see available Campus Visit dates.
