"Royal for a Day" is Rosary Academy's shadow program. This day provides prospective students with insight on the life of a Royal. Each prospective student is accompanied by a Royal Ambassador and will participate in a morning ice breaker, attend two classes, experience lunchtime, any on-campus activities, and our Girls Lead leadership workshop.
When you schedule your daughter for a shadow day, please select her academic and athletic interests. She will be paired with an ambassador who shares her similar interests.
Students must check in at 9:00 a.m. and the day ends at 2:05 p.m. (Tuesday & Friday) or 3:00 p.m. (Monday & Wednesday).
*Parents may stay for a campus tour and admissions presentation in the morning.
