8th Grade Visit Day at Solon High School


Solon High School is rolling out the welcome mat on Wednesday, October 3, to prospective students currently attending private or parochial schools. The annual Solon High School Visit Day is for Solon and Glenwillow residents – both students and their parents – who are currently enrolled in eighth grade at a private or parochial school and considering enrolling at SHS as ninth graders for the 2018-19 school year.

The agenda for the October 3 program runs from 7:50 a.m. to 10:35 a.m. at Solon High School, 33600 Inwood Road. Students and parents should enter through the front entrance doors of Solon High School, where they will check in for the program.

Prospective students and their parents will meet with SHS administrators and guidance counselors for an overview of the school’s academic and extracurricular offerings from 7:50 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Students will spend two academic periods shadowing a current SHS ninth grader. During that time parents will have the option of participating in a building tour or leaving and returning at 10:35 a.m. to pick up their eighth grade student in front of the high school.

Registration is required for Visit Day to ensure that the students selected for shadowing best mirror prospective students’ academic and extra-curricular interests. This is the only shadowing opportunity Solon High School is able to offer during the year. If students are unable to attend, prospective parents are still encouraged to attend the introduction to Solon High School at 7:50 a.m.

To register, please contact Kathleen Kinney, SHS guidance counselor, at (440) 349-7307 or, by September 26.
