Shadow Days at Fairmont Prep
This month, our 8th graders are invited to participate in a special Shadow Day opportunity at Fairmont Preparatory Academy! Shadow Days help our 8th graders prepare for high school by experiencing a day in the life of a Fairmont Prep student. On your student's scheduled Shadow Day, you will drop him or her off at Fairmont Prep at 7:45am. Then your student will participate in a full day of classes at Fairmont Prep accompanied by a classmate with similar interests and a trained Fairmont Prep Student Ambassador. You are encouraged to stay after drop-off and have a personally guided tour around the Fairmont Prep campus with Admissions Director Christine Steele. She will be happy to answer any of your questions. At the end of the day, you may return and pick up your student Fairmont Prep at 2:35pm.
The dates of your student's visit will be organized by his or her junior high. They will send you notice of the original date scheduled for your student. You will be able to make adjustments directly with the junior high. Our 8th graders will hear more information and have the chance to register for Shadow Days in their homerooms. Please encourage them to take advantage of this unique opportunity!
