Eligibility:Beginning in 2021, students will have to (1) have an unweighted cumulative GPA through their first 3 years of high school of 3.00 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent AND (2) a qualifying combined evidence-based reading and writing and mathematics score on the SAT OR composite score on the ACT as indicated on this Eligibility Table. Students can no longer establish eligibility solely on the basis of GPA or standardized test score alone. Unlike our 2020-2021 selection process, students will not be able to use PSAT scores to establish eligibility.
Supporting Documents and Recommendations: Supporting documents and recommendations must be uploaded. They can no longer be emailed or mailed.
Students may submit supporting documents up until the deadline for submitting applications: Tuesday, December 1, 2020, 3:00 p.m. Central. After the deadline for submitting applications has passed, only counselors can submit supporting documents on behalf of students. All supporting documents must be submitted by Thursday, December 3, 2020, 3:00 p.m. Central.
Students must follow the directions contained within the application for the submission of recommendations. The deadline for submission of recommendations is Thursday, December 3, 2020, 3:00 p.m. Central.
Students taking the SAT on December 5, 2020, must submit their SAT scores no later than Wednesday, December 23, 2020, 3:00 p.m. Central.
Teacher Evaluation: The required teacher evaluation must come from a teacher who has taught the student in 9th, 10th, 11th and/or 12th grade. Evaluations from a teacher who taught the student in elementary or junior high/middle school will not be accepted unless the teacher has also taught the student in high school.
SAT: Because the SAT is now the standardized test taken by all Colorado high school juniors, we require it for all applicants. If students so choose, they may also submit ACT scores and Advanced Placement test scores. See our Announcements for important information about the SAT in 2021-2022.
