PRIVATE/INDEPENDENT HIGH SCHOOL APPLICATIONS
If your 8th grader is applying to a private/independent high school for 2017-2018, the following process must be followed to obtain the necessary documents/recommendations:
1. Please notify Sandy Agajan, the MVMS Registrar/Data Processor, with the schools your student is applying to, the names of teachers requested to complete the recommendations, the system used for online applications (Ravenna, TABS, SSAT, Gateway) if paper application forms aren’t being submitted, and the due date for completion of recommendation forms and transcripts. Counselors will complete the Administrator/Counselor recommendation forms. Do not submit any recommendation forms directly to teachers, as this will delay the processing of your student’s application.
2. Also submit a check in the amount of $50.00 (payable to the Mill Valley School District) for each type of application form. The Bay Area Independent High Schools form includes Bay School, Branson, Drew, JCHSB, Lick-Wilmerding, Marin Academy, Marin School, San Domenico, University High and Urban. The Secondary Schools of the San Francisco Archdiocese recommendation forms include Marin Catholic, St. Ignatius, Riordan, and Sacred Heart, are now processed online. SSAT, TABS and Gateway are considered separate types of application forms.
3. If you are submitting paper application forms for Bay Area Independent High Schools, a parent signature is required on the Transcript Release and Confidentiality form, along with signed counselor and teacher recommendation forms.
4. All notifications of intent to apply to private/independent schools and the fee must be submitted by December 14, 2016, to Sandy Agajan, MVMS Room 101, sagajan@mvschoo
