Shadow Visits

Shadowing is one of the best ways for prospective students to experience a day in the life of a student at St. Francis Borgia Regional High School. Our students, faculty, and staff will strive to make your child feel welcome and to provide a positive and meaningful experience for him or her. While shadowing, your child will have the opportunity to attend classes with our current students, enjoy lunch in our delicious and nutritious cafeteria, and tour our entire campus. It’s a great “sneak peek” of all that Borgia can offer your child.
