Job Shadowing Information & Guidelines


As part of your graduation requirements at Union Christian Academy, students are required to complete job shadowing experiences with a goal of gaining knowledge about the work world and to explore careers. All students at UCA are required to complete at least one job shadow before graduation. Many students will complete their job shadow during summer break. This may be the most convenient time for students to fulfill this requirement. In most cases, a summer job will not count for your required job shadow. Students are required to spend at least four hours at a place of employment and complete classroom related assignments in order to receive a school related absence. All job shadow must be PRE-APPROVED by the school guidance counselor.
