Viking for a Day

Join us for our Viking for a Day Program!

An important way to see if St. Elizabeth School is a good fit for you is to visit for a day. The visitor spends the entire day with us – going to classes, eating lunch, touring the campus, and participating in the day’s events. Half day visits are also available. 

We strive to make every visitor immediately feel welcome and as a member of the Maroon and Gold Family. We encourage visitors to participate as much as possible during the day in order to fully experience what it means to be a Viking! We look forward to welcoming your student to our campus soon!

To be a Viking for a Day contact the Admissions Office at 302-656-3369 ext. 3039 or email clenoir@viking.pvt.k12.de.us for more information.
