Shadow Day Program

Our Shadow Day Program provides an opportunity to pair a visiting shadow student with a host Oaks student of the grade level being sought by the prospective student. We choose someone who is a new and friendly face, someone informative and caring who shares some common interests with the prospective student. Depending on the flexibility in a date for the student's shadow day, we can schedule the shadow to include a specific class in which the student has a particular interest. This could include an academic level, a core subject, or an elective. Please know we do our best to accommodate requests, but may be limited by circumstances of date, schedules, or special programs going on in the school that day.

If you are picking a date that is convenient for your student and family, we appreciate a week's notice before the desired shadow day. Typically, the shadow student arrives in the morning and departs after the lunch period scheduled for that day. Once the shadow day is scheduled, you will receive an email with all the details you and your student need to know for that day including: class schedule, name of host, parking and directions, logistics, and what to wear.
