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 accommodate 14 students per visit day. Visits occur on a first-come, first-served basis. 


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

If your son is currently in eighth-grade and wants to register for one of our Spartan for a Day openings, you will need to complete the Admission Inquiry Form, then select the date and time for your shadow visit.
