Shadow Information

Shadow Days are back for the 2022-2023 school year!


A shadow day is the best way for a prospective student to explore what it is like to be a golden lion. Shadow day sign up is through Ravenna and only available to students in the eighth grade or older. We designate some shadow days for specific schools sending a large number of their 8th grade students in order to minimize disruption to their academic calendar. 

Student Portion: 8:30am - 1:15pm

Itinerary: Students will gather for a short information session with our leadership team and then take a tour with our Lion Leaders (junior and senior student leaders). Following the tour, they are matched with a host student (9th or 10th grader) to attend three academic classes and eat lunch. 
Attire: We ask that students wear their current school uniform if applicable. Otherwise, please have them attend in business casual attire.  
Materials & Lunch: In case your student attends a class where they are taking a test or quiz, we ask that shadow students bring a book with them. We provide lunch! Students will choose from the menu offered by Sage Dining in our cafeteria.
 

Parent Portion (Optional): 8:30am - 9:30am

We invite parents to join their students for a short information session with our leadership team and a tour of campus given by junior and senior Lion Leaders. Coffee and light refreshments will be available. After the tour, parents will leave their students to start their day with host 9th and 10th grade students. Pick up is at 1:15pm in the front circle.
