• Please note that some public schools may choose not to participate in the submission of recommendation forms for their students. While this will not preclude an applicant from being considered for admission, it will limit the information La Reina uses to determine a student’s eligibility for, and placement within, its academic program. Without proper teacher recommendations, placement in Honors courses will be based solely on the student's performance on La Reina's Entrance Placement Test.
• All students currently attending a Catholic school must submit requests for recommendations to their current teachers and principal.
A signed Release of Records form must be submitted to the applicant’s current school. This form allows for the transfer of important information between schools. Past grades and test scores are utilized in the Admissions and placement processes.
La Reina will not accept quarter grades or progress reports for review. Student records are required to be sent to La Reina before an applicant can be considered for admission. Families should request these documents as quickly as possible in order to expedite the admissions process.
