*O'Gorman Junior High School's Campus Visit Days
If you know someone who may be interested in learning more about the O’Gorman Campus, and would like to experience a day in the life of a Knight, please encourage them to attend one of O’Gorman Junior High School’s “Campus Visit Days”. They will be held on March 17 and April 1. The visiting student will be paired with a student they already know who attends O’Gorman Junior High School or we can match them with a current student who shares similar interests. Their experience will include learning more about the O’Gorman Campus, attending classes, eating lunch, meeting the faculty, staff, and students of O’Gorman Junior High School!

Students are welcome to attend one of our “Campus Visit Days” if he or she is a current 6th, 7th, or 8th grade student and currently does not attend school in our school system (there is a class visit day scheduled in March). A parent/guardian of the student visiting must fill out the online form by clicking here​. After we receive the online form, we will be in contact with them to outline the specifics of the day!

Students do not need to attend, but may come if you choose. Current Bishop O'Gorman Catholic School families do not need to register for this event. Any families that are currently not enrolled in Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools may register for this event here. This night is not intended for families whose child already attends OGJH.
