Student Shadow Visits

Student Shadow Visits

As part of the application process, your student will spend a day at Northwest Academy visiting academic and elective classes with a host student. It’s a great way for students to get to know the school from the inside!

Schedule a shadow day via our online admissions portal. Fill out an inquiry form or log in to schedule.  Contact us at admissions@nwacademy.org or 503-223-3367 x104 with any questions.

On the day of the visit, your student will attend classes with their host.  We will do our best to match your student with a host who has similar interests or a schedule that suits your student’s interests.  When scheduling the visit, please provide any information that we should consider.

Already got your visit scheduled?  Here is a permission slip to bring on the day of the visit.  We’ll email you a few days in advance of the shadow day with complete information.  Have a great visit!
