Bring nothing. We will provide everything you need, including water, lunch, and any supplies. If you must bring a phone, please turn it off and keep it out of sight.
What's for lunch?
What else? Pizza, of course. If you have a food allergy that prevents you from eating pizza, please bring a lunch or contact the Admissions Department to discuss options.
Who runs Candidate Day?
Candidate Day is organized by the Admissions Department, but the entire faculty, staff, and administration participate. St. Augustine students volunteer to come in on a day off from school to help as Ambassadors. They are the guides and leaders for our visitors.
What happens at Candidate Day?
The day is spent meeting teachers and participating in engaging activities. Don't worry, there won't be a quiz, and the teachers like to showcase fun stuff.
Lunch will be provided at 11:55am in the school cafeteria. During this, candidates can meet and chat with Student Ambassadors to get an unvarnished view of the school from students who live it every day. Ambassadors are encouraged to be frank and to share their honest opinions. We'd love to have everyone attend St. Augustine, but only if it's a good fit for your student and your family.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
Please contact the Admissions Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or (520) 751-8300.
Who should I call if I urgently need to reach my child at the event?
Please call our main office at (520) 751-8300.
