Any eighth grade student considering attending Elyria Catholic is strongly encouraged to visit the high school, through participation in our Panther for a Day Program.
The Panther for a Day Program gives current eighth grade students an inside look at a typical school day at Elyria Catholic High School. The Eighth Grade Visitation Day allows prospective students to come as a group to meet and speak with current students, faculty and administrators at Elyria Catholic High School. Visiting students attend classes taught by EC faculty members, listen to presentations from current EC students, and enjoy lunch with other visiting prospective students. Many of the local Catholic schools attend the Eighth Grade Visitation Day as a class, but individual students are welcome to attend if their school does not participate in mass. Prospective eighth grade students are welcome to spend the day with a current EC student on any regular school day during the year. Specifics about the Panther for a Day Program are as follows:
