Plan a Visit
DeMatha Catholic High School offers prospective students and families four different options if interested in visiting our campus:
A Shadow Visit, the most student-centered of the four options, allows a current 8th grade student to experience a DeMatha school day. Admissions Staff offer a presentation upon arrival with the Stag-for-a-Day departing to a full slate of classes with a current 9th grader afterward. The 8th grade student will be able to interact with DeMatha students and teachers throughout the day while seeing our campus firsthand. Lunch is provided free of charge from our cafeteria menu. The Stag-for-a-Day will also have the opportunity to meet music directors, athletic coaches, and club moderators of his interest. The Shadow Visit is strongly recommended for all students considering DeMatha as their high school choice.
Parents and prospective students are invited to join us, typically the first Sunday in November, for our Admissions Open House. On this day, students in grade Six, Seven, Eight and their families visit DeMatha. Visitors are welcomed by a concert from our Music Program, Admissions Staff offer a general information session, Dr. McMahon presents "The Six Pillars of DeMatha," and families are given self or student guided tour through campus where they learn more about DeMatha--academics, arts, music, athletics, service, co-curricular activities and plans for the future.
On-Campus Information Sessions provide a slightly more intimate informational experience than Open House. Twice in the fall and once in the spring the Admissions Staff gathers with families in the Kilby Alumni Lounge to share information specifically about DeMatha and the high school admissions process in general.
Campus Tours are typically scheduled during the spring or summer, and provide families with a guided walk through campus. Time is spent in and around each of the campus buildings, as visitors get to experience the small college campus atmosphere.
