Part 2: Recommendations and Transcript from the Applicant's Current School
Applicants should complete the top portion of the Guidance Counselor Recommendation, English Teacher Recommendation, and the Mathematics Teacher Recommendation and deliver them to the appropriate person at their current school. The counselor and teachers should send the recommendations directly to the Saint Mary's School Admission Office. (Applicants may want to provide a stamped, addressed envelope with the recommendation to expedite the process.) The Personal Recommendation is optional.
The current school's guidance counselor or registrar must also send the applicant's most recent academic transcript and standardized testing.

Applicants must take the SSAT (Secondary School Admissions Test). Please note that this test is required, unless you are a student applying for the 11th or 12th grade and you have a PSAT or SAT score to submit in place of the SSAT.
Each applicant is responsible for her own SSAT registration. Please visit http://www.ssat.org/ to register online. The test is offered at a variety of locations across the US and internationally. Please use the Saint Mary's School code #6790 when registering to ensure that our Admission Office will receive the scores.

A campus visit and interview are required for all applicants. Please call the Admission Office at 919-424-4100 to schedule your visit to campus. We look forward to meeting you!
