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 Day Visits
Students can shadow most school days, Monday through Friday. A complimentary lunch is provided from our Café. 8th grade students are invited to shadow between 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.
