Our Shadow Visit program at SJA provides prospective students a firsthand experience to learn what life may look like as a high school student. The program also allows us to properly introduce your young lady to our learning community. Shadow visits take place at SJA every Wednesday during the school year. This day will allow your daughter to spend some time at SJA, complete with classroom instruction, a campus tour, and lunch with current SJA student ambassadors. We ask that shadowing students refrain from wearing jeans on the day of their visit.
Below is a sample schedule for a Shadow Visit Day for your student or classroom:
