Spend Your Day With Us!
Come spend the day with a Pres Girl to discover everything Pres has to offer you. To ensure your best visit, we recommend that you spend your day with us on a Wednesday. You'll sit in on classes, meet students and teachers, dine in the Pres Café and tour our historic campus.
If you’re an eighth-grader, plan to shadow during the Fall before the High School Placement Test (Sept. 3 - Dec. 10). Seventh-graders begin shadowing in January. We ask at least 72 hours notice to set up the shadow experience.
Each Wednesday parents are invited to drop their daughter off for a shadow visit and then spend some time with us at our Why Pres Wednesday session. Parents can spend the morning with a member of our administration for a tour and to get the answers to the questions that are important to a guardian.

Anything! Well, maybe not anything. Please no short shorts/skirts or midriff-bearing tops. Jeans, sweats, basketball shorts are acceptable––we want you to be comfortable.
What should I bring?
Just yourself. We provide a complimentary lunch at the Pres Café. You’re welcome to bring a lunch from home, but we pride ourselves on having the best lunch in the city. Picky eaters, have no fear. Aside from our main entrée, the Café offers soups, salads, sandwiches, nachos and baked potatoes every day.
What time should I arrive and when should I leave?
You’ll arrive at 7:45 a.m. This allows enough time to accompany your host to her locker before the bell rings.Your shadowing experience ends at 1:30 p.m. On Wednesdays, school dismisses at 2:00 p.m.
Where should I go when I arrive?
Please enter through the “Breck Entrance.” This door is located along Breckinridge Street and is marked with a blue awning. Simply ring the bell. Your shadow host and Admissions staff will greet you once inside.
Who will be my host?
Pres will match you with a freshman or a sophomore suited to your academic and extracurricular interests. Should you happen to know a current freshman or sophomore, feel free to request her as your host.
