In a typical year we would host 8th graders for shadow days in the fall so they could learn what it’s like to be a Trinity student for the day. However, nothing about the start of this school year is typical!   

Following guidelines presented by the Archdiocese of Louisville, shadowing is currently on hold, but we did not want to miss the opportunity to offer families a chance to sign up for a shadow day beginning next semester. 

 If you are interested in setting up a shadow day for your son after he takes the Placement test in December, you can click here or call Ms. Melanie Hughes at 736-2109.  We look forward to having him on campus soon!   

In addition, we are offering a variety of other options for your family to visit campus this fall. 

For more information about how your son can visit campus in person or virtually this fall, please contact Ms. Melanie Hughes at 736-2109 or

Shadowing is the best way for a student to get a personal perspective of the Trinity experience.
