Shadow Day FAQs

What can you expect on your shadow day visit?
  • You’ll be paired with a current St. Francis student as a shadow host and you’ll accompany her to classes and to lunch. You can request a specific shadow host or we will pair you with one of our Troubie Ambassadors.
  • Expect to be on campus for about 5 hours, depending on the day you choose. We want to make sure you get to see a variety of classes, experience our community lunch, and really immerse yourself in the Troubie sisterhood . If you have specific subjects that interest you, we’ll do our best to accommodate your request for classes that match your interests. 
  • You’ll be treated to lunch in our cafeteria and our mouth-watering chocolate chip cookies!
  • Troubies will show you how they use their school-issued Chromebooks to read textbooks, take notes, and track their schedule.
