SAINT DEMETRIOS PREP invites you to visit our beautiful campus in the heart of Astoria, Queens during one of our Open Houses. During your visit, you will tour the school and meet students, faculty, administrators and current parents. This interactive setting gives you a firsthand look at the life-long intellectual and spiritual foundation we provide our students with, in addition to a rigorous and innovative curriculum focused on faith, critical thinking, responsibility, and service.
Prospective students will follow a freshmen ambassador throughout the course of the day. They will experience a day in the life of a SDP student. To schedule a visit, please call 718-728-1754. Limited spaces available.
We encourage all applicants and their families to personally visit the campus for a campus tour and interview. A personal interview is a required part of the application process and a great opportunity for students to learn more about SDP. Applicants will interview with one of our Admissions Officers and parents/guardians will have the opportunity to meet with the Admissions Officer as well. Families should plan to spend about two hours on campus for the tour and interview.
While visiting, students are also welcome to observe a class, meet with our teachers and staff.
Just let us know of your requests when scheduling your appointment.
Spend a Day Shadowing a Student
The Student for a Day Program is a great way for a prospective student to experience Saint Demetrios for the first time. This unique opportunity is available to students between September and April.
In order to provide as personal a visit as possible, we limit visitation to 5 visitors per day. Students should arrive in the Admission Office at 8:30am. and can be picked up in the Admission office at the end of the school day at 2:45pm.
Each visitor will be given lunch. Guests can also bring their own lunch. Visiting students should wear a dress shirt, tie and dress pants with shoes (no sneakers).
Each visitor is also welcome to bring a friend along who may also be interested in experiencing Saint Demetrios for a day. The two can be paired and are able to spend the day together while visiting. Both students will need to make their own appointments before visiting.
Each visitor may also request a particular current Saint Demetrios student to be his/her host for the day when making an appointment. If a visitor does not know a student whom he/she would like as his/her host, we will assign someone to him/her; possibly someone who shares a common interest or who is from the same hometown.
