Spend a Day


Visiting Salesianum is the best way to learn more about the school and get a sense of our strong and spirited community.

In addition to attending our Open House, eighth grade students, as well as prospective transfer students, are encouraged to experience a typical school day by “shadowing” a current student at Salesianum. 

Parents may arrange a visit by calling Admissions at (302) 654-2495 x148. We recommend calling several weeks prior to your intended visit, and to have multiple days open for a possible visit day. Visits begin in October and run through the spring. We try hard to accommodate a student's request to visit on a particular day, but space is limited to ensure minimal classroom disruption for current students. 

What to expect on your shadow day:

  • Students are to arrive by 8:15 a.m. 
  • Dress code is a dress shirt, slacks, tie, dress shoes, and a sport coat (optional). 
  • Students will be provided with a free lunch voucher to be used in the school’s Dining Center but may bring their own lunch.
