Campus Tours

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 two hours 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 April.

Please note that campus tours are not a requirement of the application process.

Crusader for a Day (Shadowing Program)

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. To schedule your son to shadow, please click the link below to fill out the Crusader for a Day form.

Crusader for a Day FAQ

List of 5 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.
