The Weekend Visit Experience is an opportunity for young Catholic boys to explore St. Lawrence as a prospective high school. This experience is open to current eighth, ninth and tenth grade students. The weekend traditionally runs Thursday through Sunday and allows students to experience a residential high school life during the course of the school year. Due to the impact of Covid-19, weekend visits in the fall of 2020 will be limited to a Friday through Saturday visit, with overnight accommodations provided at a local hotel. Live, virtual visits are also available.
Weekend Visitors join the students in prayer, classes, meals, and recreation. During the weekend the prospective students take an admissions exam. The results are shared with both the student and his parents before departure from campus.
Students within a 5 hour radius are provided transportation on Friday morning of the visit, arriving to campus by 11am. Parents are to join their sons between 8 and 9 pm Friday evening at the designated hotel. Saturday morning families will meet on campus for the remainder of activities which conclude by 2 pm. Sharing this experience provides common ground from which prospective students and their parents can discuss future attendance at St. Lawrence Seminary High School.

We also have opportunities for middle school boys to experience during our Day of Discovery, once a year.
After one visitors weekend, I knew St. Lawrence was the place for me to explore a vocation in Christ.
