Teacher Recommendations


The teacher recommendation is an important part of the application process…..

We recommend that you ask two teachers who know you well.  You should out of courtesy ask them as soon as possible.  They have many other responsiblities and probably have many letters to write so don’t wait until the last minute.

Make sure you give them a copy of your resume and let them know the procedure.

Last but not least…..remember a thank you note speaks volumes!

Four major items they consider for admissions:

1) Curriculum rigor and GPA

2) SAT and / or ACT

They super, super score the SAT and ACT, meaning they will take your highest score from either test to

calculate your highest total score possible.  For example, if your highest math score is from the ACT

and your highest critical reading score is from the SAT, they will take the math ACT score and combine

it with the critical reading SAT score.

3) Extra-curricular activities (including leadership positions)

4) Essay
