I don't think it was as stressful for me to apply to college or even graduate school as it has been for Sofia and Hannah to apply for High School. Here's what is required for the application to TAG (granted, the BEST high school in the nation, as rated last year by Newsweek Magazine, amazing!). Applications must have:
- Resume with back up documentation for the activities listed
- Official copy of grades and test scores
- Project highlighting a talent, with essay explanation
- Essay written by hand, on a prompt given to them
It really helped that we had been through this with Hannah already and knew to get started early. We're way too busy to be able to whip this up a few days before the deadline, which is the end of February.
Now the wait begins. She should find out by early to mid-April.
