To Schedule Your Tour or Shadow Day
Campus Tours are open to Parents and Students interested in LVA. We begin at 12:30 pm, with an information session in our Main Building located at 315 South 7th Street. After that, tour groups are escorted by LVA Student Ambassadors throughout the three block campus. You will see classes and rehearsals in session; you will visit each of our theaters, each conservatory and academic building. Tours conclude at 1:45 to coincide with school dismissal. Parents whose students are participating in a Shadow Day can schedule a tour for the same day and pick up their student at the conclusion of the tour.
Shadow Days are for prospective students. During the day, you will follow a current LVA student in your intended major throughout their entire school day - classes, rehearsals, lunch, etc. This is a great way to see what life at LVA is really like. Lunch will be provided, but you must have your own transportation to and from LVA. Students Check In and Meet their shadow partner at 6:30 am in the Lowden Theater Lobby located at 875 East Clark Ave. Parents may pick up their students in the same location at 1:40 pm, the regular school dismissal time.
Shadow Days must be requested at least a week in advance. After submitting your form, you will receive an email confirmation and additional information.
