Applying to College

Your child should have narrowed his/her college options down to 3-5 possibilities over the summer (1 dream school, 2-3 realistic options, 1-2 definite options). As a family, you should be having serious discussions about what college(s) your child can attend based on the academic and financial requirements of those school(s), in addition to size of the school, distance from home, availability of potential majors, etc. Applications are available on each college’s website, along with their academic and testing requirements. 6th semester transcripts, which are required by every college for admissions consideration, will not be available until late August early September.

 

 Recommendations

Mrs. Farmer handles all recommendations including Common Applications and secondary school reports. If a recommendation is needed, your child needs to provide her with a resume and a completed Student Brag form. Recommendation letters will not be given to the student to protect the integrity of the contents.

 

Requesting Transcripts

Requesting Transcripts 6th semester transcripts (through 11th grade) will be ready in late August-early September. Transcripts can be requested with Mrs. Hayes in the guidance office 1st-4th period daily.  It is your child’s responsibility to insure he/she is requesting transcripts in time for any deadlines. After graduation transcripts are $5.00 dollars in person and $6.00 dollars online.
