The Shadow Day helped my son compare JSerra to other schools we were looking at. After the Shadow Day, we understood why families come here.

Shadow Program

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a JSerra Lion? The best way to discover what life is like at JSerra is to attend a Shadow Day! On a Shadow Day, we will match your student with a current JSerra student who shares their interests. Your student will have the opportunity to ask questions, tour our beautiful campus, attend classes, and gain insight into the student experience at JSerra — not to mention lunch from the Lion's Bistro on us!

What to Expect

Select a date

All prospective students entering grades 7 through 11 are invited to participate in a Shadow Day. Shadowing is available most Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays. Please check our calendar to select the date that works best for you. Students must be registered 4 days prior to the requested date.

Schedule Your Shadow DAY

Review Attire

Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately with nice dress pants or shorts and a polo shirt (boys) or a modest dress or pants with a blouse or polo shirt (girls). If your student is currently attending a private school, the uniform of that school may be worn. If you sign up for a special Shadow Day during a spirit week or special dress day, your student may participate in the special dress. We will contact you directly with details about special dress.

Check In

On your Shadow Day, please arrive no later than 7:50 a.m. in the JSerra Pavilion (the gym across the street from main campus) as we will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. Students will come to the gym to sign-in, receive a guest badge, and a free lunch pass at the Lion Bistro. We will have a brief introduction and a special tour for parents.
