1. Understand Admissions

2. Find Programs & Develop a Thoughtful Application

You are not only selecting a high school but also a program at a high school. Some high schools have several programs; some have just one. 

  • Research as many schools and programs as possible. 

  • Learn how to make a thoughtful application

    • Think about your child’s special talents, strengths, and requirements when selecting programs. 

    • Consider academic offerings, school culture, and travel time 

    • List schools in order of your true preference.
