    Tour information and requesting a tour

    Tours take place on Monday’s: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm in the Student Center

    Prospective 8th Grade students must be accompanied by an adult. Students will be turned away if they are not with a responsible adult.  Please plan ahead as our "AAD" tours are the only opportunity to visit Drake during the school day.

    If your preferred “AAD” date is closed, please check back to see if there are cancellations the Monday before the tour.  No waiting list is kept.  Please email Mimi Bennett Jarvis, mbennett@tamdistrict.org, if you need to cancel your reservation or have other questions.
