Visiting the Abbey

Panther for the Day

We invite all prospective students to visit our community for a “Panther for a Day” visit. Visits take place between 8:30 am and 12:30 pm on Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays. Prospective panthers will visit four classes with a Form III host and have the opportunity to speak with teachers and students to get the inside scoop of what it means to be an “Abbey Boy”.

Parents are also invited to take a tour of our community with one of our admissions counselors while their son is visiting classes. Please log into your Ravenna account to register for a visit day.

Covid-19 Policy
St. Anselms requires all Panther for a Day participants to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and follow the school’s mask and social distancing policy while on their visit. Students must always wear masks when indoors except when actively eating or drinking. Students may remove their masks when outside, except when participating in sports or when physical distancing is not possible. Panther for a Day participants will be required to upload proof of vaccinated at least one week before their visit via their application. There are no exceptions or exemptions to this policy.

General guidelines are:
  • Admissions staff will meet you at the Upper Building at 8:30 am.
  • Dress code is a tie, button-down shirt, belt, slacks, dress shoes, and a blazer (October through April)
  • The Abbey follows Montgomery County's decisions for weather-related delays and cancellations.
Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, "I came as a guest, and you received Me" (Matt. 25:35). And to all let due honor be shown…
