Private School Information
The Guidance Office will provide assistance to any student who is making application to a private school. There are so many schools that it is impossible for us to keep information on all of them. A good resource for information is “PETERSON’S PRIVATE SCHOOL GUIDE” Which can be found at the Canton Public Library.
In order to speed up the application process there are several steps you need to do. We do not provide the application packets. You must contact the schools directly. They will be happy to send you the information.
There are several parts to the application. The ONLY TWO pieces that needs to be sent to the Guidance Office is the request for transcripts and the school administrator recommendation form. We process applications on a first come first serve basis. We recommend providing the Guidance Office with all necessary materials 2 school weeks prior to the deadline for processing. We make every attempt to do this in a timely manner. The earlier we get the request the faster we can respond. EACH APPLICATION MUST HAVE A SELF ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE. We do not send out transcripts before the end of the first marking period. We send a postcard with each transcript to track the process and make sure the receiving school has all the necessary materials. Once we receive the postcard back acknowledging receipt of the transcripts the receiving school is responsible for the materials.
SPECIFIC TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS SHOULD BE DELIVERED TO THE CLASSROOM TEACHER DIRECTLY BY THE STUDENT. PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL NECESSARY POSTAGE. PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS IS DONE BEFORE YOU SEND IN ANY FORMS
