Shadow Days

Beginning Monday, September 18, 2017
The Shadow Day gives an eighth-grade girl a wonderful opportunity to spend the entire day shadowing a Villa Freshman to experience first-hand what a real day at Villa is like. Eighth-graders are welcomed to the school in the morning by their "buddies" for the day and guided through a full school day. This is truly the best way to understand the family atmosphere that makes Villa the special place it is.

While the Shadow Day is not required, it is strongly recommended. Many Villa students report that their Shadow Day was the single most important deciding factor when they chose Villa. Appointments can be set up for these visits by contacting the Admissions Office. Shadow Days only occur from mid-September (beginning September 18, 2017) through mid-November, for eighth-graders only. To schedule a Shadow Day, parents should contact Bailey Gorman, Admissions Associate, at 215-357-8810, ext. 209, or
