Shadow Day Opportunities

We are excited to offer an engaging Shadow Program, designed to give 7th and 8th grade prospective students the opportunity to experience a day at Lutheran West. The Shadow Day experience is available from October through early April for eighth graders and from March to early April for seventh graders.

Families of Prospective Students are invited to contact Mrs. Hyldee Hess to set up a shadow day.

Shadow days can be scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We recommend a minimum scheduling lead time of five days if possible.

Unique to the Shadow Day program are “Ambassadors of West”, who are specially trained to host prospective students, making the visit day a fun and informative experience. The Ambassadors are able to answer many of the common questions a prospective student may have, as well as introduce them to other students and faculty members.
Parents may request a tour of the school on the day their student shadows.

We were encouraged by our many faithful teachers ... not only in the classroom, but by example. They, along with our loving parents, have always been there to encourage us, push us ...
