Prospective students in the eighth grade are invited to spend a day at Hackett Catholic Prep. We will pair a prospective student with a Hackett student who shares similar interests.  This is a great opportunity to experience a typical day on the campus of Hackett Catholic Prep.  Visiting students will get to know some students and teachers and even enjoy a Hackett Catholic Prep lunch in our cafeteria.

Please contact Enrollment Director, Sarah Gillig, to schedule a shadow day.  You may reach Sarah by email at or by telephone at 269-381-2646, extension 114.

What to Expect on the Shadow Day

Many prospective students feel a bit anxious as they enter our building on their scheduled shadow day.  This is normal and we try our very best to make our guest students feel comfortable and welcome on this day. Below are some details that may help alleviate some of the anxiety prior to your student's visit:

  • We are a uniform school. We ask that male guests wear a collared (polo type) shirt, and casual dress pants. Females may wear pants or a skirt. Please make sure you skirt length is just above the knee.
  • We ask visiting students to arrive at 7:30am and report to the main office. Your Hackett Student Ambassador will greet you in the main office.
  • You will follow the schedule of your Student Ambassador. We try to match our guest with a student with similar interests.
  • We will treat you to lunch so no need to pack a lunch or even bring money.
  • Our school day ends at 2:30pm. You can meet your parent(s) in the main office at the end of the day.

At the end of the day, parents and students are welcome to meet with one of our Administrators to answer additional questions.


Hackett Catholic Prep requires students to follow our Uniform Dress Code.

The Uniform Dress Code can be found here.

Flynn O'Hara Uniform Company is the sole provider of our school uniforms.  Uniforms may be purchased on the Flynn O'Hara Uniform website:  At the end of May, Flynn O'Hara hosts a sale on our campus.  This is the best opportunity to try on clothes and purchase uniforms. Please check our website in the spring for the dates and times of the Flynn O'Hara sale at Hackett Catholic Prep.

Gently used uniforms can be purchased at HCP.  Each item is $5.  Stop by the main office for more details.
