Resources

Common Application

If you are applying to multiple private colleges, we ask that you use the Common Application.  It will save you, your counselor, and your teachers quite a bit of time. Visit the Common to see which colleges use the Common App. Create an account and get started. The website has a Help Center which is a great resource if you have questions.

Common App Website.

The form below includes directions on how to invite your counselor to complete the Common App School Report. If you need a counselor letter of recommendation to accompany your school report, make an appointment with your counselor for further instructions.

  6. Once everything is entered, click Send Invite and an email will be sent directly to your counselor. Your counselor will fill out your online School Report form, upload your official transcript, and submit your counselor Letter of Recommendation. You DO NOT need to order an official transcript from the counseling office, we will upload it online.
  7. For the Letter of Recommendation, we do require that you make an appointment with your counselor to formally ask that they write you a Letter of Recommendation.

Letters of Recommendation

NOTE: Public colleges do not require school report forms or counselor letters of recommendation.  The information below is for students applying to private colleges through the Common Application or on the college's own online application.

School Report Form
For the Common Application and certain other private school applications, a school report form is required. The school report includes information about your classes, GPA, and transcript (we upload it so you don't have to order one separately). If you invite your counselor to complete the school report form online, we will complete it automatically. 

Counselor Letter of Recommendation
Some Common Application and private schools ask for a counselor letter of recommendation while others don't.  You will need to find out if any of the colleges you are applying to require a counselor letter, and if so, you will need to make an appointment with your counselor at least one month prior to the first application deadline.  Your counselor would like to interview you, discuss the need for the letter, and give you a packet to fill out.  If we receive an online request but you don't make an appointment, we will complete the school report but will not include a letter of recommendation.  Letters take quite a bit of time and effort so we ask that requests only be made if the colleges you are applying to require a counselor letter of recommendation.
