Student Shadow Program

Throughout the admission process there are numerous opportunities for you to get acquainted with The Walker School and our community. Our student shadowing program is one such way. Prospective students are paired with a Walker student and invited to attend classes, meet our teachers and staff, and interact with our current students. We feel that it is extremely important for you to have an authentic Walker experience to help you determine the right fit for your next school.  A school visit also helps us to get to know your child better and to learn about his or her unique talents and interests. Ultimately, a shadow visit is a wonderful way to establish meaningful relationships.

Shadow visits are available for prospective students rising 2nd through 12th grades. The length of visits will vary depending upon the schedule, but most typically last from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Lunch is included for Lower and Middle School students.  We ask for a minimum of 48 hours advance notice to allow us to properly prepare for your arrival.  We thank you again for your interest in The Walker School and we look forward to spending some valuable time with you during your visit.
