Private High School or Technical High School:

If your child is planning to apply to a private high school or technical high school we ask that you download the documents below so that you are familiar with our process and requirements.   We ask your child to fill out the activity sheet and return it to your child's guidance counselor, Mr. Gosselin, as well as any teacher who is writing a recommendation.  It is helpful so that we have as much information about your child as possible. 

Parents and students research private high schools on their own.  The guidance department does not provide information or applications regarding private high schools, however, we will assist your child by writing recommendations and sending the appropriate transcripts.  We understand the importance of finding the right school for your child and will support your child throughout this process.

The guidance department does have applications and information for Essex Technical High School and Greater Lawrence Technical High School for those who are interested.

***Please note that 1st trimester ends on December 4, 2015 which means that transcripts cannot be printed prior to this date. All private school applications that have been given to Mr. Gosselin will be mailed out when available.  We will make every effort to mail out your child's applications by the identified due date.***
