shadow Days

Shadow days are strongly encouraged for all applicants and are offered from September through May. Parent(s)/guardian(s) should plan to meet with the Director of Admissions either at drop-off in the morning or pick-up in the afternoon. The Admissions team will be in touch with you at least one week prior to your visit regarding your shadow day itinerary. If your schedule allows, we offer overnight shadow visits for candidates interested in boarding at La Lumiere. Schedule your shadow day by emailing the Admissions Team at

Abbreviated campus visits

Campus visits are offered year-round for applicants who are unable to participate in a Shadow Day.  Your visit will include a discussion with the Director of Admissions, a campus tour, and a meeting with one of our teachers. Schedule your Abbreviated Campus Visit by emailing the Admissions Team:

Admissions interview

All candidates are required to complete an interview with a member of the Admissions Team.  If you're participating in an abbreviated campus visit or Shadow Day, we'll add your interview to your personal schedule.  If you are unable to visit campus, your interview will be conducted via Skype.
