Private High School Application Process

Private School Application Process

Student or parent brings in guidance portion of application to the guidance office, tells us which teachers s/he  intends to ask for recommendations (if any), then signs a face sheet verifying this information.​ 

Guidance secretary emails teachers from whom recommendations are to be requested.

Guidance secretary follows up with an email or phone call to the parent confirming receipt of application in the guidance office.

Teachers complete their recommendations, place these in envelopes with signature and return to the guidance office-OR-complete an online recommendation.

Guidance completes the guidance portion after first quarter grades are issued (all schools ask for grades received in seventh grade and available grades in eighth grade) and encloses any other required information (test scores). Once completed, the package is forwarded to the school .

The eighth grade school counselor will oversee the entire application process.

***Please note it is the student’s responsibility to request, deliver related materials for, and follow up on teacher recommendations,*** 

Private High School Application Supplemental Form

The student can choose to complete the “Teacher Questionnaire Survey."  This form is intended to provide helpful information to those writing a letter of recommendation for whom the letter of recommendation is being written.  It is the student’s responsibility to ask teachers if they would be willing to write a letter of recommendation on their behalf.
