Interested in attending Xavier? Come check us out!

Our shadow program provides interested eighth grade students an opportunity to accompany a freshman host through a typical day at Xavier.  Our guests will attend classes, meet teachers, coaches, counselors, and get to know our Xavier community.

Students interested in transferring to Xavier are also welcome to participate in our shadow program.  They will shadow a student in the same grade level.
Shadowing is not mandatory, but it is a great opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a Xavier student.  The number of shadow guests is capped at four per day.

Student guests should:

  • Report to the Admissions Coordinator in the office at 7:45 am (school begins at 8:00 am) 
  • School begins at 9:00 am on Wednesdays; report to the office at 8:45 am
  • Comply with the Xavier dress code: boys wear a polo, black or khaki slacks or shorts.  Girls may wear a polo with black or khaki knee-length shorts, pants or skirt.  No denim, jeans, sandals, or flip flops allowed.
  • Bring a snack, sack lunch, and a water bottle.
  • Students will return to the Admissions Coordinator after the last bell at 2:40 pm

For Parents: If you would like to schedule an appointment with the President/Principal on your student’s shadow day, please contact Marcie Quagliani at 760-601-3900 ext. 6255, or via email at

The 2023-2024 Shadow Program has concluded for this school year. Thank you to all who joined us!
