Private School Applications/Recommendations for Current 8th Graders

Lawson Middle School Guidelines 

If you are applying to a private school for next year, please follow these guidelines: 

Step 1: Application 

Obtain an application from the admissions office of the private high school(s). Most of these applications are now online. ​Remember to check application deadlines!  

Step 2: Recommendation Forms 

If you need a Recommendation Form filled out by a teacher/counselor, ​talk to them ​prior​ to putting in his/her email information in the application.​ The high school(s) will send online recommendation forms directly to these teachers once you provide them with an email address.  

Step 3: Transcript Request/Release Form 

In order for the counselor to release your transcript/standardized test scores directly to the private school, we need your parent/guardian’s approval. 

Please complete the form and have your parent or guardian send the form in an email to your counselor. 

If the private school uses Ravenna. your counselor will upload your documents directly to Ravenna 

If the private school does not use Ravenna, please provide us with the preferred method of delivery of the transcripts/standardized test scores. 

For mail-in: Please drop off a stamped envelope at LMS front office, which should be 

addressed to the private school with Lawson Middle School’s address as the 

return address. You can drop off at the front office between 11am-3pm on any school day. 

For email: Please provide us with the appropriate email address to send the information to. 

Please allow your teachers and counselors 3-4 weeks to process the recommendations and all forms noted above.
