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 at La Lumiere. Overnight shadow visits are scheduled for the first Monday of each month.

Please contact the Admissions team at if you are interested in scheduling an overnight shadow visit.

shadow Days

Shadow days are strongly encouraged for all applicants and are offered on Mondays and Tuesdays during the school year. Parent(s)/guardian(s) should plan to meet with the Admissions team. The Admissions team will be in touch with you prior to your visit with additional details.

Schedule your shadow day by emailing the Admissions team at

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.
