Step 1: Complete the online SJR Admissions Application. You will be asked to create an SJR Portal account. Please remember to jot down your username and password as you will be returning to this page often during the process.
Step 2: Request Official Transcripts from your school. On the portal you will find a Records Release Form. You will need to download this form and present it to your current guidance counselor or, once you fill out the form, you may upload it back to the portal and we will send the request to your current guidance department. Official transcripts are a required component to be considered for admission and the methods outlined here are the only ways to have them sent to us.
Step 3: Request Letters of Recommendation. Each prospective student is required to provide at least one letter of recommendation from their current school administration. Certainly, a second letter may also be provided (and is currently encouraged due to the absence of testing). Subsequent recommendation letters may be from coaches, clergy, etc... You may upload all letters to your portal or, if the preferred, the person(s) writing the letter(s) may email them directly to us: email@example.com.
Step 4: Upload your last two most recent report cards to the portal. This information will be examined while we await your official transcripts (see step 2).
Step 5: Register for Open House and a Private Tour. Private tours are required for transfer students and recommended for grammar school students. (Note: Our Knight for a Day program is not currently running due to COVID-19 restrictions.)
Step 6: Click here if you plan to apply for financial aid. Please note that deadlines apply.
