Shadow Visits and Private Tours


Shadow Visits for 7th and 8th grade students for the 2023-2024 school year.

Seventh and eighth grade students may schedule a shadow visit to JCA for most Fridays during the school year from September through April.

Guests must dress appropriately and are expected to act in accordance with JCA’s rules and standards. Guests who do not follow disciplinary rules will be asked to leave JCA immediately. It will be the responsibility of parents/guardians to pick up the student if such problems occur.

It is the responsibility of the student guest to inform his/her Junior High School of their visit to JCA. Guests are encouraged to make sure that their absence from school is excused and should arrange to make up missed schoolwork.

Upon arriving at JCA, student guests should report to the Main Office at 7:40 a.m. and pick up a visitor and a lunch pass. Presentations and a tour will be given during first period. Guests will then meet their JCA student and experience a regular scheduled school day. JCA’s school day runs from 7:50 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. Pickup is at 2:40 p.m. outside of the main entrance.

Thank you for visiting JCA!

Please call JCA Admissions Director Mr. Jared Voss ’92 at 815.741.0500, ext. 214 with any further questions.

Photos will be taken during Shadow Days and may be used for publication. If you do not want your child’s picture posted please contact the main office.
