Submit Supporting Materials
The deadline for supporting materials is Friday, January 19, 2018. Supporting materials include:
1. Online Teacher Recommendation: Flint Hill requests a teacher recommendation from the applicant’s current teacher. Teacher recommendations are confidential and must be submitted online. Please click here to log-in to schoolrecs, and use the same login information used to submit your child’s application. After logging in, create a profile for your child and a link will appear with his or her name. Next, select the recommendation you would like to submit and enter the teacher’s email address. Once you submit the recommendation request, the teacher will be prompted to complete the online recommendation. You will be notified by email when the recommendation has been completed.
If you have questions about the online teacher recommendation, contact Stephanie Flores at 703.584.2310. If you experience any technical difficulties, please contact schoolrecs support at 888.450.8821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Transcripts/Progress Reports: Required only for Grades 1-4, the Permission for School to Release Student Records and Transcripts should be submitted directly to your current school. Official transcripts must be submitted to Flint Hill directly from your current school.
Parents/Guardians of applicants for Grades JK – 4 must complete the Parent Questionnaire.
An interview allows parents to ask questions about our School community and gives us the opportunity to learn more about your family. Interviews are scheduled daily by appointment. Please contact Annie O’Mara at 703.584.2314 or email@example.com.
