Due to COVID-19, our ability to offer Shadow Visits has been suspended. Limited in-person campus tours will be available shortly. Thank you for your understanding!
The Loyola Academy Shadow program gives prospective students the opportunity to experience a typical school day at Loyola Academy. Eighth grade students are invited to shadow in the fall and seventh grade students are invited to shadow in the spring. Prospective transfer students are also invited to shadow in the spring.

Shadows will accompany a freshman or sophomore student throughout the school day. If you know a freshman or sophomore Loyola student who you would like to shadow, please make this request when you are scheduling your shadow day.

All shadow reservations are made online. Please note, Loyola Academy has a limited number of shadows per day. Shadow reservations are on a first come, first served basis. Shadow reservations must be made at least five days in advance of the shadow day.
