Experience a Shadow Day

We know what a big decision choosing a high school can be, and we want to help you to pick the school that is right for you. The Shadow Program at Heritage offers students 8th grade and up the opportunity to spend a morning with us to see what our school is really like.  We can't wait to share our school with you!   

Shadow Days for 2019-2020 are now closed, but we offer a wonderful Freshman and New Student Orientation in August right before school starts.  On this day your student will receive a copy of their schedule along with their locker assignment and the chance to tour the school with one of our student leaders.  If you've missed out on Shadowing this year, know that this day is available to you and because it is right before school starts it is invaluable in making your student feel comfortable the first couple of days at school. 

Shadow Days for the 2020-2021 school year will begin in September with registration opening in the first week of August.  They are scheduled once a month beginning in September and are limited to 60 students per day. Please make your reservation early and let us know if you must cancel so we can contact students on the waiting list. We require that parents make these reservations since students will miss a half day of school and will need to be excused. We have many good volunteers who would love to spend the day sharing our school with you, but you may also make a special request. The reservation form has a place to request a sibling or friend to act as a Shadow Mentor for the morning, and provided their schedule works for that day, we will try to accommodate your request.

Students arrive at 8:15 a.m. for an introduction to their day and tour of the school led by our HHS Ambassadors. Parents are welcome to stay at this time to share in the introductions and take a tour of the campus with our principal. (This is optional, we know how busy you are!)  The students then spend 3 class periods with their Shadow Mentor getting a "feel" for the school. Shadows will eat lunch together in our 2nd Floor Lecture Hall during 4th period. Lunch is graciously paid for by our PTO and will include presentations by students and teachers on athletics, clubs, and life as a Heritage Eagle. The Shadow Day ends at 12:45 p.m. Shadows will meet their parents in the parent loop out front of the school.

Thank you for your interest in Heritage High School!
