Shadow Day

 Scheduling for 2019-2020 Shadow Days is Now Open



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 that have completed our Future Lion Form.  


Each shadow day will be limited to five students. You must be on the CECP Intent to Enroll or currently enrolled  for the 2020-21 school year to be eligible for a shadow day.  


Students who are now enrolled at CECP for the 2020-21 school year or are on the Intent to Enroll for the 2020-21 school year have been sent an email containing the link to register for a shadow day. If your student qualifies for a shadow day and you did not receive an email please contact our admissions department at  Please make your shadow day reservation early. If you need to cancel, please call 720.638.6824 or email our admissions team as soon as possible so that we can 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.

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 student ambassador and take a quick tour of the school and start their day. The Student Ambassadors will take the shadow students to the front desk at the conclusion of the day to be checked out and they can then be picked up at 3:05-3:15 p.m. at the front desk.
