To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Spending a day at the Academy is the best way to see the daily workings of our unique all-girl environment. Visiting students spend the day with a student host, attending classes and all other school-day activities. AHN student-hosts vary in grade level and interests.

Visitors will meet students and teachers and see firsthand what the Academy is all about. A visit to AHN does not imply admission to the school. Campus visits are scheduled from September through April. Dates are subject to space availability and school events.


How do I set up a Shadow Day for my daughter?

Complete the Shadow Request Form. Confirm the date with the student's school and current teachers.

What time should I drop off and pick up my daughter?

Shadows should arrive at the Academy at 7:45 a.m. A host will greet her in the main lobby at the Bayshore entrance. Pick-up will be in the same location at 1:35 p.m.

Wednesdays are late-start days. We ask that shadows arrive at 8:30 a.m. The day concludes at 1:55 p.m.

Should my daughter pack a lunch?

Lunch is provided by the Academy. Shadows will have their choice of food from our cafeteria provider, SAGE Dining.

What should my daughter wear?

We ask that students dress comfortably for a day at school. Our classrooms may be chilly so we encourage guests to bring a sweater or sweatshirt. No shorts or ripped jeans, please.
