The Brave Day shadow program is designed to provide interested 8th grade and transfer students an opportunity to visit the Brebeuf campus for a day, attend classes, and meet teachers.

Shadowing is not a mandatory part of the admissions process, but it is highly recommended. Guests will experience a typical day of school in the company of a current Brebeuf student, and it is a wonderful opportunity to observe our students and teachers in a classroom setting. We can’t wait for you to experience how even a typical school day at Brebeuf is an opportunity to learn and grow.

COVID-19 Update

Brebeuf Jesuit is actively planning for the possibility of both in-person and virtual Brave Day visits throughout the 2020-2021 school year. Brebeuf administrators will follow the guidance of the CDC, Governor Holcomb, and the Brebeuf Medical Task Force when determining whether shadow opportunities will be offered on the Brebeuf campus or virtually. We will share updates with registered Brave Day guests about the format of the visit.

The online registration to schedule a Brave Day visit will be open on August 1, 2020, and we will actively communicate updates to registered Brave Day guests.
