Be a Concordia Prep Student for the Day!

Q: What is “Shadowing?”

A: “Shadowing” is a program designed to give your student a feel for Concordia Prep. Your child will attend classes and lunch with a student host. At the end of the day we will conduct a brief interview and provide a general tour of school grounds.

Q: What books or classroom materials should my child bring?

A:  On a rare occasion, the host student may have a test/quiz during one of the class periods. Your child can bring in homework that needs to be completed from his/her current school, or bring in a book to read while the test is being given. Use of cell phone in the classroom is not permitted. Cell phones must be kept turned off.
