Shadow Day

Welcome to Colorado Early Colleges Parker!

 

We know what a big decision choosing a high school can be and we want to help you to pick the school that is right for you. The CECP Shadow Program will give you the opportunity to experience life as a CECP Lion! The CECP Shadow Program is only for prospective students who are currently in grades 8-11.  

 

Shadow Days will begin on October 16, 2017, and will continue through March 2018. Each shadow day will be limited to five students. You must be registered to attend CECP for the upcoming school year or attend an informational meeting prior to scheduling your student for a shadow day. If you have not yet attended an informational meeting please register here

 

Please make your shadow day reservation early. Call us at 720.638.6824 if you have to cancel in order to make room for other students who may be on a waiting list for that day. We require that parents (not students) make these reservations since students will have to miss a day of school and will need to be excused.

 

We have many Student Ambassadors who would love to spend the day sharing our school with you, but you may also make a special request. The Shadow Request Form has a place to request a sibling or friend to act as a Student Ambassador for the day and provided their schedule works for that day, we will try to accommodate your request.

 

SHADOW DAYS ARE NOW AVAILABLE

We have released the shadow day schedule for October through December. Additional appointments will become available after Winter Break.

Shadowing students will receive a $5.00 coupon to use in our Lion Café. It is recommended to bring a few extra dollars in case you wish to spend more than $5.00.

 

Who will I be shadowing?

Visitors will be paired up with a current Student Ambassador. You will attend the classes that they have scheduled for the day. We will do our best to match you with a student who has similar interests. If you know a current student, you may request to shadow them on the Shadow Request Form.

What time do I need to arrive and be picked up?

When coming to shadow a student for the day, we ask that you be here at 7:40 a.m. Visitors should arrive and check into the main office. Visitors will then meet with a tour guide and go on a tour of the school. Visitors will then be paired with their Student Ambassador for the day. The Student Ambassadors will take the visitors to the front desk at the conclusion of the day to be checked out. Visitors can then be picked up at 3:30 p.m. at the front desk.
