Get a first hand look at St. Francis Preparatory School. A Buddy Day is an opportunity for eighth grade students
to spend the day at St. Francis Preparatory School and experience what it is like to be a member of the Prep
family. Students who apply are paired with a St. Francis Student, usually a freshman for the day to attend
classes, go to lunch and get a true feel for the life at Prep.
How do I schedule a Buddy Day?
Buddy Days for accepted eighth grade students start in early October. Please click HERE application for dates available. Only 8th grade students can apply.
Once the application has been processed we will confirm with your assigned date. St. Francis Preparatory

will be escorted back to the Admissions Office at 2:00 where they can be picked up at the completion of their day.
What do I do for lunch?
You need not bring lunch. St. Francis Prep will provide you with a lunch voucher. Snacks may be
purchased separately. Students may bring their own lunch and/or snacks.
