Schedule a Visit

The best way to see what it would be like to be a Priory student is to experience it firsthand and come to visit during a school day.

You can spend a half day on campus, shadowing one of our current students and taking part in assemblies, classes, club periods, lunch, and anything else happening at Priory on the day of your visit. It will also be a chance to meet our students and interact with faculty. Our goal is for students who visit Priory to feel welcome as they engage with our wonderful community of students, teachers, and staff and to learn about the academic, spiritual, athletic and social aspects of our school. You will be in good hands!

Half-day visits are open to current 5th or 6th graders applying to 7th grade and current 7th graders applying to 8th grade. Full-day visits are open to current 8th graders applying to 9th grade, or transfer students. A shadow visit is a required part of our application process and usually takes place in the fall. Students are welcome to visit Priory even before submitting an application.

Planning Your Visit Day

Priory welcomes visitors on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We do not have shadow visits on Thursdays.
