Students will sit in on full math, language arts and special subjects classes, as well as have an opportunity to meet with current high school students over lunch. We highly encourage prospective students to attend a Shadow Day in our High School. Only students who have submitted the online application may sign up for a Shadow Day (supplemental documents of recommendations and academic records not required to attend).
