Your Student Host is your main contact during the day. He/she will take you to their Advisory and Morning Meeting as well as classes and activities throughout the day. ADMISSIONS TESTING is required for all visitors. The Wide Range Achievement Test 4 (WRAT 4) is administered on the day of your visit during one class period.

We request that you remain with your host. If you know another student you would like to visit with during breaks or lunch, please invite him or her to join you and your host. Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns prior to your visit. We will try our best to accommodate your interests and needs.
