Schedule a Hermit for a day visit

What better way for you to discover what it’s like to be a Hermit than to spend a day as one? Please call Mrs. Mary Jane Hrapczynski at 856.697.2600 x149 to schedule your visit.

All 7th and 8th graders are invited to spend a full day at St. Augustine Preparatory School to learn what it’s like to be a Hermit. They will be paired with a current Prep student who has similar interests. This student will show them around campus and share every part of his school day. By enjoying a day here on campus, prospective Hermits will meet students, teachers, and administrators. Most importantly, they’ll experience for themselves the friendly atmosphere, exciting school spirit, numerous academic opportunities, various clubs and activities, and dozens of athletic programs that await future Hermits.
