Shadow Day at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley

We know there's nothing quite like trying something on to see if it truly is the right fit. That’s why we invite students on campus to join us for a Shadow Day so they can experience a day at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley!

What is a Shadow Day? It's an opportunity for a prospective student to spend the entire day on our campus shadowing the grade they are interested in. They will attend a full day of classes, eat lunch, have outside time, attend office hours, meet teachers, participate in classes, get to know a group of students, and so much more! This is not a requirement of the application process, just a perk! 

We often hear from prospective families that they have questions about the transition, the academics, the culture, they don't know if their child can keep up with the schedule, etc. We believe the Shadow Day puts parents, and students, questions to rest. By being on campus and spending a day in classes with real BASIS Independent Silicon Valley teachers and students, they are able to meet students with similar backgrounds (i.e. public to private), learn what the workload is like from students actually doing it, and also learn how students, who had the same questions they did, transitioned with the help of their teachers and Student Affairs Team.
