3. Register your student for a Shadow Day.

Prospective students can spend the day with a current LJA scholar and experience classroom life at LJA firsthand. It is helpful for families to take the time to tour LJA or attend an Information Session prior to signing their student up for shadowing, but is not required. This experience is intended for prospective students who are considering attending LJA and would like to learn more about our school.  Please call the school office at 651-414-6000 for more information or to schedule a visit.
