Request Student Shadow

Experience a day in the life of a West Michigan Aviation Academy student. During a student shadow, you are invited to spend a day at our school! On your prearranged Shadow Day, you will be paired with one of our amazing student ambassadors. You will attend classes and meet teachers and other students while getting first hand experience of what WMAA has to offer. We are eager to share our school with you!
Please note that student shadows are reserved for students currently in grades 8th – 11th. Student shadows are offered on various Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the school year beginning in October. If you are interested in scheduling a student shadow, please fill out the Shadow Request Form below and we will contact you with available dates.
