Visit Strake Jesuit
What's the best way to figure out if Strake Jesuit is the right fit for you?
Visit our campus!
Visit Strake Jesuit to see firsthand what is so special about our community. We offer a variety of opportunities to see our fifty-two acre campus, meet members of our faculty and staff, mingle with current students, and experience a school day in action.
Our ‘Crusader for a Day’ program gives 8th grade students interested in attending Strake Jesuit the chance to experience daily school life through a student’s perspective. During this half-day visit, students attend morning classes, eat lunch, and have the opportunity to meet with the Admissions staff and coaches or directors in their areas of interest during Community Time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should my son wear?
Generally, visitors tend to feel more comfortable when they dress in our school dress code: shirt with a collar, long pants, belt, dress socks and dress shoes. Tennis shoes are acceptable if dress shoes are not available.
Where is the Admissions Office?
We are located on the second floor of Moran Hall. Drop-off will be just outside of Moran Hall and afternoon pick-up will be in the Admissions Office.
Is lunch provided?
Yes. Your son does not need to bring lunch or lunch money.
Do we need to know a current student at Jesuit for our son to be a 'Crusader for a Day'?
No. Your son will be paired with a Jesuit Ambassador, a current freshman or sophomore at Strake Jesuit, who has similar interests as your son. However, if you know a current student that your son would like to shadow, we will do our best to honor your request. All visits should be scheduled through the Admissions Office.
Can you provide a letter for my son's school?
Yes. The letter will be provided to you when you pick up your son at the end of his visit.
Can my son bring a cell phone?
Yes. Cell phones may not be used in the classroom during the school day but may be used outside of the classroom.
For prospective families who are unable attend Open House, Strake Jesuit offers the opportunity to attend a campus tour during a school day. Campus tours typically last about 90 minutes and are led by an Office of Admissions staff member.
Campus tours from September through the first week of April are reserved for current 8th grade prospective students and their families. 7th grade tours are offered in late April.
Please note that campus tours are not a requirement of the application process.
