shadow Days

Shadow Visits are strongly encouraged for all applicants, and are offered from October through April. 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.  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: 


Abbreviated campus visit

Campus visits are offered from May through September 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.
