Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School
How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out
Date: Every Mon (Oct 29-Apr 29)
Ages: Family Admission Fees: FREE

Shadow Day

A shadow day is an excellent way to experience a day at Kirby and to see if our school is a good fit for your student. We will pair your student with a host who has similar interests. They will spend the day together, attending classes, hanging out with other Kirby students, and enjoying lunch with friends in the renowned Kirby Café.


How it works:

  • Monday is our preferred shadow day because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be scheduled for any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen by our executive chef, Tracy Landry.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call (831) 423-0658 ×202, email, or use the Contact Us link below.
