JCA Shadow Visit

  • *Suspended until further notice.


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 school work.

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!
