8th Grade Visitation Day

Each fall, the Office of Catholic Education sets aside a day for 8th grade students to spend time at a Catholic high school of their choice, usually in mid-November.

Students may choose to visit any diocesan high school or Mercy Vocational High School.  Students select the school of choice through their 8th grade teacher.  The visit is an all-day experience. The following is a typical schedule for students visiting Mercy Vocational High School:
