ECA Shadow Days

The ECA is hosting a formal Shadow Day experience for prospective students and families. This will be a chance for students to shadow a student in ECA high school classes for either a morning or afternoon. We will provide special programming for parents/guardians (January 28 only) while students are in class, including a Q & A session with the Principal and current students, parents, & guardians.

Both the ECA program and Eastern Michigan University have procedures in place to prioritize the health and safety of students, staff, and visitors in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Universal masking, physical distancing of 3 feet wherever possible, daily health screening, monitoring of symptoms, and enhanced cleaning and sanitizing are part of our daily operations. When you sign up to come visit with us, you will receive more information about safety expectations.

Shadow Day is for students entering 9th, 10th or 11th grade for the 2022-2023 school year. Students are only allowed to attend ONE Shadow Day per school year.

Please CLICK HERE to sign up for Shadow Day!
