The Application Process:



Teacher :Many 4 year colleges require letters of recommendation from your classroom teachers. Consider asking two teachers, before the end of junior year, if they would write you a letter of recommendation for college. You need to fill out one Teacher Recommendation form for each teacher you ask. The more details you add, the easier it will be for your teacher to write the best letter for you.

Counselor: Many colleges also require a letter of recommendation from your Guidance Counselor. The Counselor Recommendation form is due back to us by October 15th of your senior year. Please answer the questions on the form in as much detail as possible. 

Students must request letters of recommendation from their teachers/counselor by the following dates:

October 15th for November 1st College Application Deadlines

October 30th for November 15th College Application Deadlines

November 14th for December 1st College Application Deadlines
