Shadow Program

Current Bellarmine students guide their 8th grade shadows throughout the morning. Admissions representatives are available to answer any questions,
and the program concludes just before lunch. Students tell us year after year that this was the best way for them to get to know Bellarmine.


To register for a Shadow Day, you must have created a free Ravenna account.

From the Bellarmine application dashboard in Ravenna, select "Sign Up for a Shadow Visit", and make sure to complete the "Shadow Visit Form" AND "Register for an event" (i.e., specify your desired shadow day).

Shadow Day Instructions for Parents & Students

Please read the instructions below in preparation for your visit. Once you've registered on Ravenna, you will receive a receipt to print out, confirming the date you selected. The receipt is your confirmation that the Bellarmine Admissions Office has received the shadow registration form. Students should bring a copy of this receipt on their shadow day.

If you need to cancel or re-schedule your shadow day, please notify the Admissions Office at 408-537-9259
