Campus Visit Program

We encourage interested eighth grade students to shadow at Saint Ignatius through the Campus Visit Program. Each visiting student will accompany a current Ignatian and attend class, meet faculty members, have lunch in the cafeteria, and experience a typical day at Saint Ignatius College Prep.

Campus visits may only be made by students in the eighth grade. Campus Visit Days are available on any regular school day between September 12 and November 20, 2019.
If you have any questions before your visit, please feel free to contact Karen Coleman at 312-432-8409 or

Thank you for your interest in Saint Ignatius College Prep!
