Visit Campus

Experiencing La Lumiere School in person is the best way to learn about our community and immerse yourself in Laker culture. To schedule a visit, call our office at (219) 326-7450 or email


Overnight Shadow Visits

Overnight shadow visits are a great opportunity to experience life as a boarding student. Prospective students will arrive the evening before they are scheduled for a shadow day. They will meet our current boarding students, eat dinner in the Moore House, and learn firsthand how boarders spend their time after the school day concludes.

Please fill out the following form if you’re interested in reserving a spot for an overnight shadow visit.

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 Admissions team. Admissions will be in touch with you prior to your visit regarding the details of your visit. 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

Campus Visits

Campus visits are offered year-round for applicants who are unable to participate in a shadow day during the school year. Contact Admissions for more information.

Admissions interview

All candidates are required to complete an interview with a member of the Admissions team. If you're visiting campus, we'll add your interview to your personal schedule. If you are unable to visit campus in person, your interview will be conducted via Skype.
