There are several school records needed for your application (report cards, EOG scores). I am more than happy to make those copies for you. Please feel free to let me know if you need copies of your school records.

Recommendations from your child's current teacher and adminstrator are also needed. Please be mindful of the deadline (Dec 6th) when asking for references. The sooner, the better to contact JYJ staff for recommendations.
