Shadow Visits & School Tours

Shadow Days

Shadow days are offered beginning in the month of September. Shadow visits are an opportunity for your son or daughter to be Irish for a day! On their shadow day, one of our current students (their host for the day) will take them to their classes, introduce them to their teachers, coaches and friends, share their academic and extracurricular interest as well as give them a tour of the school. The shadow experience is a great way to get a glimpse of everything Bishop McNamara has to offer.

School Tours

We offer private tours throughout the year. Simply contact the Enrollment Office at 815.932.7413 x 134 to schedule a mutually convenient time.
