Panther for a Day

Being a Panther starts with one day, but it lasts for a lifetime.
The best way to get to know our community is to spend a day with us!
  • Walk our halls with a current student
  • Attend classes
  • Meet our faculty
  • Visit the chapel
  • Have lunch with your future classmates
  • Catch some Panther spirit!
Contact Mr. Glenn Farello at 703-352-0925 x340 or to schedule a day. Please provide Mr. Farello the first and last name of the student, current school and grade, and the name of parent(s) and their contact information. You may also request a specific student to host or provide your child's interests so we can match him/her with one of our outstanding Student Ambassadors. If possible, please make arrangements at least a week in advance.

The Panther for a Day Program will begin on September 13th and run until Dec 7th in 2018. We will resume the program on Jan 9th.

The following dates are not available:

  • October 8th, 10th, 15th thru 19th, 26th
