How do I schedule a visit?
Students are encouraged to get to know the SJND campus and the school community by coming for a Shadow Day visit.
During a Shadow Day visit, students are paired with an SJND student and will have the opportunity to experience a day in the life at the school. Parents are encouraged to stay for a brief presentation and tour of the school on the morning of their student's Shadow Day.
Please contact the Admissions Office at (510) 995-9458 to schedule a Shadow Day visit.
Should I come to Open House if I am already familiar with the school? Yes! At Open House, you will have the opportunity to meet current SJND students, faculty, coaches, parents and administrators. You will also learn more about our academic programs, clubs and athletic teams. Visitors can also participate in tours and learn first-hand about the SJND student experience.
Does the school have an entrance exam? Yes. Every incoming freshman must take the High School Placement Test in January. SJND also offers an HSPT Prep Course in September.
Does SJND accommodate students with learning differences? Yes. SJND has a Learning Services Counselor on staff, and all students with documentation will be provided the accommodations they need.
Is the family interview required? Yes.
