What better way to understand life as a Red-Tailed Hawk than to experience it for yourself! At BIM, we invite applicants to grades 5 and above to join us for a morning on campus and see what life is really like for our Red-Tailed Hawks!
I recently attended a Student Ambassador meeting and watched over 70 Red-Tailed Hawks practice everything from how to introduce themselves during a panel to making eye contact when answering one-on-one questions. I love watching our students learn and grow as they prepare to welcome visitors, like you, to campus. And speaking of welcoming visitors to campus, nearly all of our Student Ambassadors will tell you that Shadow Days are their favorite admissions activity.
Shadow Days are a great way for BIM applicants to better understand our school culture and community. If you are applying to grade 5 or above, we highly encourage you to spend a morning on campus, where you can gain first-hand insights into life as a Red-Tailed Hawk.
Here are four great reasons to participate in the BIM Shadow Day Program.
Reason 1: See It for Yourself
Here, students are excited by their advanced studies and hands-on learning experience, which bring the material to life. Plus, they are energized and inspired when surrounded by others eager to learn. Joining us (even just for a morning) will give you a chance to participate in our vibrant learning community.
Reason 2: Make Friends
A small school provides great opportunities to get to know the entire class as well as students older and younger. Teachers and staff take extra time to get to know each other. While you will not meet everyone in just one morning, making a friend or two or three will help you feel more comfortable about joining our community.
Reason 3: Get Your Questions Answered
At BIM, teachers and classmates want to succeed and are dedicated to supporting each other. From how students balance their academic and extra-curricular interests to where students hang during lunch, this is great time to get your questions answered.
Reason 4: Have fun!
Learning and school should be fun, engaging, and interactive. BIM provides the chance to explore new interests, meet new people, and try new things!
As you get to know our school, I hope that you will see and experience these things for yourself. From seeing an experiment in the Food Science class to watching the drama club prepare for an upcoming performance, our Red-Tailed Hawks are ready to give you a glimpse into life on campus. So, sign up for a Shadow Day, where you will meet our Student Ambassadors, faculty, administrators, and more and see how we are preparing our Red-Tailed Hawks to soar!
