Upcoming Information Sessions
School Tour (Recommended for Parents)
A great place to begin your journey would be to visit during a regular school day. School tours give you a sense of what a regular day looks like at the Academy. You will be able to observe the classroom, witness how students engage with the curriculum and collaborate with each other, and see how our innovative teachers make thinking visible. The tour also includes a brief presentation on the school’s history, mission, and curriculum.
Tours are generally about an hour long. Reservations can be made through the online event page.
Upcoming Tour Dates
Applicant Shadow Days
To help applicants get to know the Academy, we invite you to schedule a Shadow Day. The visit includes time in two classrooms, as well as snack with the Academy Student Ambassadors. Applicants will get a sense of what it's like to be a Triton, and they will have the opportunity to ask any question they have about high school.
Shadow Day visits begin at 9 a.m. and end at 10:45 a.m. To sign-up for a Shadow Day, visit the sign-up genius page here.
