Shadowing Program

Our ‘Irish for a Day’ program gives 8th grade students interested in attending Knoxville Catholic the chance to experience daily school life through a student’s perspective. During this half-day visit, students attend morning classes, eat lunch, and have the opportunity to meet with the Admissions staff and coaches or teachers in their areas of interest. Shadow days are by appointment only and we ask that parents/guardians schedule at least two weeks in advance. To schedule your shadow day, please click the 'Sign Up Now' button below or contact Joni Punch at 865-560-0502.
