Age verification and language proficiency scores are required prior to scheduling an interview.
For the current admission cycle, Masters is accepting recommendation forms from teachers (math and English) and administrators from last school year (2020-2021). Please note this is optional, and these forms will not replace the required teacher and administrator recommendation forms from the current school year (2021-2022). Recommendation and transcript release forms for the 2021-2022 school year can be found on your checklist when logged into your family portal. Optional recommendation forms for teachers who taught your child in 2020-2021 can be found here.
We also require a graded essay from the current school year. This piece of writing should have been produced for an English class and should include teacher comments and the final grade (if applicable). The document you submit must include the applicant’s full name, the date the writing was composed, and the name of the course for which it was written.
