Is JC Right for You? Visit and See for Yourself.
There’s no better way to get to know John Carroll than to visit. When you visit our 72-acre campus, you will feel right at home! Students and their parents can experience the JC difference in a variety of ways:
Shadow Visit Days
Students can shadow most school days, Monday through Friday. A complimentary lunch is provided from our Café. To shadow a specific Patriot, provide the current student’s name on the registration form. 8th grade students are invited September-January; 6th and 7th grade students may attend in March or April. Student visitors will be paired with a JC freshman or sophomore student ambassador and will attend classes and meet faculty, administrators, coaches and other students. This will help prospective Patriots to get a true feel for a day in the life of a JC Patriot and begin to picture themselves as a part our community.
Parents are invited to stay for 30 minutes of Coffee and Conversation from 8:30 a.m.– 9 a.m. with representatives from John Carroll administration who will share a presentation and be available to answer any questions.
Schedule a Tour
We are happy to show you our 72-acre campus! Tours provide an overview of the campus, a peek into our classrooms and answers to all of your pressing questions. Our goal is to equip you with all the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about your child’s education. To schedule a personalized tour of our campus, please contact the Admissions Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.838.8333.
Our annual Open House is Saturday, October 27 from 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. See all the reasons why “Every Patriot Has a Story.” Meet the teachers and coaches. Speak with other students. Hear from parents. Learn about our unique academics, incredible arts and expansive athletic programs. And experience the energy of our vibrant school community. The Admissions team will be on hand to answer questions and walk parents through the process.
Registration for this event is now closed.
There are two Welcome Wednesdays each year, one in the fall for 8th graders and one in the spring for 6th and 7th graders. Families will get a group tour of our campus, hear from faculty and staff, and get valuable hands-on information about the admissions process.
The JC Admissions staff also offer a number of other events throughout the year to provide opportunities to see for yourself if our school is the right fit. We encourage anyone considering JC to join us at any of our upcoming admissions events.
