Factors in College Admission

Academic Record

The academic record includes an evaluation of the number of academic units a student has completed in high school, the levels of these courses, and the grades earned. All of this data is combined to determine a student’s GPA and class rank.

Testing Data

Testing data may include the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), Scholastic Aptitude Subject Tests (SAT II), the American College Test (ACT), and any Advanced Placement exams that were taken. Many two-year colleges and career/technical schools do not require SAT scores. If planning to attend one of these schools, please contact the admissions office of the school.

Recommendation Letters

Recommendations are typically requested by students from their school counselor and 2 academic teachers.


The student’s resume should include all experiences beyond the classroom curriculum which may be invaluable towards the college admissions process.
