Shadow Day

Shadow Day – Admissions – St. Dominic High School
If your son/daughter would like to spend a day at Saint Dominic High School, please call 516-922-4888 ext. 5315 to schedule your day.  We welcome both 7th and 8th graders to be a Bayhawk for the day to see what it is like to be a student at St. Dominic High School! A Shadow Day is an opportunity for 7th and 8th grade students to spend the day at St. Dominic High School and experience what it is like to be a member of the Bayhawk Family. Students who are interested are paired with a St. Dominic student, usually, a freshman, sophomore, or someone who you may already know, for the day to attend classes, go to lunch and get a true feel for the life at St. Dominic.
