Shadow Days

ChiArts is now offering Shadow Days! Registration for 8th graders is currently open! Click the link below to register.

Current 7th grade and transfer students, you will have an opportunity to shadow in the Spring semester. We will update the website when registration becomes available.

Please note, if you register for a shadow day before registration opens for your grade level, you risk losing your place in line. Please only register when instructed to do so.

Transfer students, before being scheduled a shadow day, you must first submit your transcript for evaluation. More information is available through the registration link below.

Shadow Days will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis for all students, based on area of interest. We will be unable to reschedule a shadow day once it has been scheduled. Students are able to attend a shadow day for only one conservatory. Students scheduled must attend a full ChiArts school day, 8:00am-5:00pm.
