Shadow Days

Shadow Days are allowed for current 8th grade students, or current high school students interested in transferring. Eighth graders must shadow a freshman student, and current high school students must shadow a student one grade level above them (for instance, a current sophomore would shadow a current junior).

The student may pick who they would like to shadow, or they can be paired with someone with similar interests or learning levels.

The day of the shadow, the student is to report to the main office (1200 W. Washington St.) at 7:45 a.m. to meet their shadow mate, and we ask that the student bring emergency contact information. The student may wear comfortable, appropriate clothing (no tight-fitting clothing, holes in pants or yoga pants), and lunch will be provided from our cafeteria. They may be picked up from the main office at the end of the school day at 2:25 p.m.

Request a Shadow Day


We invite you to step inside SHG during a regular school day between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Appointments may be made after 2:30 p.m., if necessary.

On your tour you will get a thorough walk-through of our main campus at 1200 W. Washington St., meet students and teachers, see our facilities and everything SHG has to offer. You may also meet with a guidance counselor and/or tuition manager during this time.
