How the Program Works
To make the most of the Paladin For a Day experience at Paramus Catholic High School, students must observe the following instructions on the day of their visit:
- Arrive by 8:15 a.m. and get dropped off at the front of the building.
- Ensure someone is available to pick up at the same location by 1:00 p.m.
- Dress appropriately in khaki pants and a polo shirt or blouse (students should wear their current school uniform if possible).
- Bring a lunch if they prefer, but we will provide lunch to all Future Paladins
The following information gives students a general sense of what to expect when they become a Paladin for a day.
Our class schedule runs on a six-day cycle, which means it rotates approximately once every week. Each period lasts for 40 minutes except for the first class, which continues for 49 minutes. School begins at 7:50 a.m. and ends at 1:54 p.m., making each day about six hours long.
