Shadow FA for a Day

Frederica Academy welcomes admission applicants to experience an on-campus “Shadow Visit” as an exciting portion of the admission process. These visits are designed to provide a prospective student with a unique opportunity to try out FA for a day.


The prospective student will be paired with a current Frederica student in the same grade with similar interests and hobbies. For students applying to a grade in the next division (rising 5th and 9th grade applicants), visitors have the opportunity to shadow either with their peers in his or her current grade, or shadow in the rising grade to experience school life in the next division. Regardless of the grade, visitors experience a full day of the engaging and enriching educational opportunities that are the hallmark of student and academic life at Frederica Academy.


Shadow Visits should be scheduled on a day when school is in session and free of special events or testing. To schedule your child’s shadow visit, contact Helen Rentz, Director of Admission, at 912.638.9981 ext. 106 or via email to
