STEP 2: TK/K RECOMMENDATIONS FORM (For TK, K and 1st Grade)

Alverno requires that incoming TK and K applicants submit the TK/K Recommendation Form to their current/previous school or daycare. First grade applicants can either submit the TK/K Recommendation Form or upload a Kindergarten report card. The recommendation form must be received from the recommender through the SchoolAdmin system. You may access the recommendation request after completing the application and submitting your application fee. On the checklist, you will be given a space to provide an email address for the instructor who will complete the recommendation and the form will be sent directly to him/her to complete. 

Addition recommendations may be submitted from a student’s pastor, academic coach, or other mentor.

STEP 3: UPLOAD TRANSCRIPTS OR REPORT CARDS

Alverno asks for schools reports from the previous academic year, and first semester/trimester of the application year. We will accept either transcripts (they can be unofficial)or report cards for review. Please upload legible copies in your SchoolAdmin portal.
