Schedule a Shadow Day

Sign up below to spend a day with one of our Upper or Lower School students, attend classes, eat lunch and go to any school-wide events that take place on the day of your visit. (Lower School Shadow Days are available for grades 1-8.) The goal of our Shadow Day Program is to offer students an opportunity to experience a school day at the Academy.

  • All students should arrive by 8:15 a.m.
  • Lunch will be provided.
  • Student pick-up at the end of the day is at 2:00 p.m.
  • Faculty will make every attempt not to test or quiz on shadow days. However, this is not always possible; therefore, visiting students are asked to bring reading material with them.
  • Lower School shadow students are asked to bring a snack and drink.

“NDA is a very supportive, judgement-free environment. Everyone here is unique with different areas of interests, but we’re all supportive of one another. This contributes to a sense of confidence that is instilled in all of us and empowers us to get involved and take risks. The students here aren't fake, they’re friendly & happy to be here.” - Kathryn Tarantino, Senior
