Saint For A Day (Shadow a current student)

Saint for a Day



Saint for a Day

The best way to decide if Saint Thomas Aquinas High School is right for you is to visit our supportive and enthusiastic community! Eighth graders will get VIP treatment when they spend a day at STA! Experience firsthand what is so special about our community. We offer various opportunities to see our campus, meet faculty and staff members, mingle with current students, enjoy a delicious lunch, and experience a day in action. We ask that students only select one day to shadow.


Each day will include a discussion with Senior Ambassadors, lunch, and a school tour. 

Please register your 8th-grade student to visit us on one of our designated shadow days. We can't wait to meet you and show you what makes Saint Thomas Aquinas a premier high school in Overland Park, KS!


Important Information for Shadow Visits

  • Students must be registered in advance.
  • School begins most days at 8:00, so the arrival time is 7:45. Drop off at the NW corner of the school.

  • Please dress nicely, no jeans, shorts or athletic wear.
  • Students will receive a voucher for a complimentary lunch.
