The Spartan for a Day shadow visit program gives future students the opportunity to experience the traditions, students, and faculty that make De La Salle High School a unique academic community.

Shadow visits are for 8th grade male students only and are limited to one visit per student. Due to the high volume in requests, we can only have ten students here at per day. Visits occur on a first come, first serve basis. We will add a link to the 2018-19 Spartan for a Day dates as soon as we can.


  • Experience a typical day in the life of a Spartan
  • Meet teachers and students
  • Participate in class
  • Enjoy a free lunch

T-shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts (with no collared shirt underneath), turtlenecks, and sleeveless shirts are not permitted. Undershirts and T-shirts may not hang lower than the outer, collared shirt or jacket. (Members of athletic teams are permitted to wear their game jerseys on certain days designated by their coaches and with the approval of the Dean of Students.)
