Teacher Recommendation Form
McCallie requires recommendations from all applicants’ current Math and English teachers. If the applicant has only one teacher, the current teacher and the previous year’s teacher should each complete a recommendation form. We ask that students have a teacher for at least two months before asking him or her to complete a recommendation form. Personal recommendations are optional and may be submitted to email@example.com at any time.
A request to complete teacher recommendations can be to teachers via the Applicant Profile
after Nov. 1st by clicking "Request" under the Teacher Recommendations box.
Request for Recommendations and Release of School Report
The School Report Form should be submitted to the school at or near the end of a student’s first semester. These documents demonstrate a family's request for the current school to provide Official Transcript from previous years, first semester grades for this school year, results of standardized testing, records of attendance, and disciplinary records (if applicable). Families may also include a copy of the applicant’s most recent standardized testing and first semester, report card.
