Visit Mary Help

During the year, the Office of Admissions hosts special events to help prospective students and their families become familiar with all that Mary Help has to offer. In addition to campus events, we make several visits to elementary schools, high school nights, and community events.
Blue Jay for a Day 
Prospective students are cordially invited to Be a Blue Jay for a Day! Shadows will spend the day at MHC Academy and experience our classes and facilities firsthand.
Parents, please complete the online form to request a shadow visit. While completing the form, be sure to give as much detail as possible about your daughter. This will ensure her shadow day is tailored to her individual interests. After submitting your request, you will receive an email from our Director of Admissions to confirm the details of your daughter's visit. Please allow 24 to 48 hours for the Office of Admissions to get back to you after submitting a form. If you have any questions, contact us at 973.850.7445.

Preview Day - Register Early, Limited Space
Friday, November 22nd 8 am - 12 pm
Preview Days at MHC Academy are an exciting way for students to experience Mary Help firsthand. While many schools offer shadow days and campus tours, Preview Day allows us to welcome cohorts of middle school students to spend a morning at the Academy, sample our course selection, and enjoy special presentations from our student athletes and performers.
It is especially important that interested students register in advance for Preview Day, as this information helps us plan a personalized experience for each student. If you have questions about Preview Day or any other Admissions event, please email the Office of Admissions directly at [email protected] .
Campus Tours
We encourage you to join us at our Open Houses for the most informative tours. However if you can not make one we can arrange a private tour with our student ambassadors to show you the beauty of our scenic campus.
