Coffee and check in begins at 8:45 a.m. Guests are invited to tour the campus, observe classes, meet faculty and staff members, and learn more about the school and its programs, including the school’s gradual shift toward classical Christian schooling.

In addition, guests and their children may shadow a current student during the March 12 Shadow Day to experience a typical day at North Hills. Reservations to shadow are required by March 4. Prospective families may call to schedule a personal campus tour, observation of classes, and shadow time by appointment as well.
