A shadow day is an opportunity for prospective students entering 6th-12th grade to spend the day at Oak Hall School and experience firsthand what it’s like to be a member of the school community.
Students that shadow are paired with an Oak Hall Student Ambassador who is in the appropriate grade with similar academic, athletic, or elective interests. During your visit, there is the opportunity to meet with teachers and administrators, sit in on classes, and enjoy lunch with future classmates.

Upper School: 7:50 a.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Students scheduled for a shadow day are asked to arrive at the Administration Building at 7:50 a.m. for grade 9-12, and 8:00 a.m. for grades 6-8. Admissions Staff will meet you to begin your day as an Oak Hall Eagle. We will then walk you to the division you will be shadowing to complete a quick 20 minute writing prompt. Your student ambassador will meet you at the division front office at 8:25 a.m. and walk you to their first period class.
At 2:45 p.m., your Student Ambassador will bring you to meet with Dr. Diana Murdock, Director of Middle School, or Mr. John Perlette, Director of Upper School, who will walk you back to the Administration Building as your shadow day concludes.
Parents are asked to arrive for pickup at 2:45 p.m.
Students shadowing at Oak Hall School are not required to wear a school uniform, however, are asked to dress appropriately.
Appropriate dress for boys is a collared shirt with pants, jeans, or shorts.
Appropriate dress for girls is a collared shirt or blouse, with jeans, pants, or shorts (5" inseam or longer). Appropriate length skirts and dresses that cover the shoulders may also be worn. Sandals are fine, but no flip-flops.
Middle School students should wear the appropriate dress above and tennis shoes for P.E.
Please note that hooded sweatshirts are not in compliance with Oak Hall School's dress code.
To reserve your shadow day at Oak Hall, please complete the form below.
Please note: Due to our smaller classroom sizes, we are only able to accommodate a certain number of shadows in each grade level on a given shadow day. We do this so as not to detract from the quality of our classroom instruction. If we have reached the maximum number of shadows for a certain date, we will notify you via e-mail with other available shadow dates. Your shadow reservation is not complete until we have confirmed your request. Shadow forms must be received 48 hours in advance of the requested shadow date.
