Shadow Days

An Academy Shadow Day is a great way for students to get a sense of what IMSA is all about. Visiting students will be hosted by current students and will attend classes, have lunch in the cafeteria and conclude with a Q&A session with one of our Admissions Counselors.

Academy Shadow Days will be held on:

  • Thursday, Nov 2, 2017 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm (Registration closed).

  • Thursday, Dec 7, 2017 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm (Registration closed).

  • Thursday, Feb 8, 2018 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm (Registration closed).

Shadow Days are reserved for applicants only. Students must have a submitted application or an application in progress to register.

There are 10 spots available on a first come first serve basis and there will be a waitlist for each date. Students may only register and attend once, but may join the waitlist for multiple dates. Detailed information about the day will be provided once registered.
