In the month of May, all juniors will request letters of recommendation from two faculty members in core academic subjects (English, History, Religion, Science, Math, World Language). Juniors will follow this process for requesting teacher recommendations for college applications:
- Ask your teacher(s) in person to agree to write a letter of recommendation for your college applications.
- After teachers agree to write your letter, complete the Recommendation Request Form/Questionnaire for each recommender. All questions are required unless otherwise indicated. Copies of the form are available in the College Center.
- Take your completed Forms to your teachers for their signatures. DO NOT leave the completed and signed questionnaire with your teacher. Your request is only complete and official when turned into your College Counselor in the College Center.
Teachers will then compose letters of recommendation during the summer/early fall, uploading them to Naviance by October 1 for inclusion in your digital package of supporting documents (i.e. recommendations, transcript, school profile, etc.) to be sent to colleges by your College Counselor.
