Schedule a Student Shadow Day

Shadow a Student

Are you in 7th or 8th grade and considering attending Franklin Towne Charter High School? Shadow a current Franklin Towne Student and see the incredible things our school has to offer! 

Please complete the Calendly Form to request a date on which you can come to our school for full school day.  All requests must be submitted at least 5 days prior to the date you wish to shadow. All dates will be confirmed via email. Shadow pairings are at the discretion of Franklin Towne. Dress code and instructions will follow upon confirmation.

Here is what you can expect if you shadow for a full school day:

  • You will arrive and report to the front desk using the main entrance of the building no later than 7:50 AM. Around that time, you will be introduced to the student you are shadowing.
  • From there, you will accompany the student to their 4 academic classes, 1 advisory study-hall period, and lunch.
  • At 2:00 PM, you will be escorted to the front desk to be picked up. At that time, you will have the opportunity to ask the student you’ve shadowed any final questions you have.

Here is what you should bring with you:

  • A pen and paper to write down any questions or notes you may have throughout the day.
  • A bagged lunch or money to purchase additional snacks/treats in the café. Free lunch will be offered for all students.

Rules for Shadowing:

  • Cell phones should be turned in at the front desk upon arrival as they are prohibited from being used by any Franklin Towne student during the school day. All cell phones will be eligible to be picked up upon dismissal.
  • As a prospective Franklin Towne Charter High School student, you are expected to act respectfully as a guest in our building. Please do not interrupt teachers or students while they are conducting classes. All of your questions and comments can be stated during hallway transitions, lunch, and at the end of your day at our school.
  • The attire requirement for prospective students is khaki material pants and a FTCHS school-issued T-shirt, which will be provided upon arrival.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact [email protected].
