VIP Shadow Day

The best way for prospective students to experience a day in the life of a Hurricane is to shadow a current Marian Central student. Prospective students will attend Marian Central classes, enjoy complimentary lunch and meet our teachers and students. Shadow days are reserved for 7th and 8th grade students or high school students interested in transferring to Marian Central and are designed for students who have yet to decide on their high school choice.
