Pilot for a Day


De La Salle's student ambassadors who provide tours for Pilot for a Day visitors.

The Pilot for a Day shadow-visit program gives future students the opportunity to experience the students, teachers, and traditions that make De La Salle Collegiate a unique academic community.

Shadow visits are for seventh- and eighth-grade boys, and are limited to one visit per student. Due to the high volume of requests, we can only accommodate a handful of students per visit day. Visits occur on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Highlights include:

  • Experience a typical day in the life of a Pilot
  • Meet teachers and students
  • Participate in class
  • Enjoy a free lunch

If your son is currently in eighth grade and wants to register for one of our Pilot for a Day visits, you will need to complete the Admission Inquiry Form below, then select the date and time for your shadow visit.
