Absolutely – we will be contacting you to continue the process, at wherever that point in the process that may be. Applicants are participating in virtual classes and meeting virtually with teachers to participate in assessments. We ask that you still request teacher recommendations from your child’s current teacher, as most students are in contact with them. If their school’s office is closed, you can share their most recent report card with us directly.
