At Tenacre we are proud of our graduating students. We hope that each one of them leaves the school as a confident learner, a critical thinker and a caring citizen. To help our students make a successful transition to their next school we work carefully with families to determine which secondary school is the best match for each child.
The Head of School, with support from our Sixth Grade teachers, is directly involved in the secondary school application process. In the early fall Mr. Elliot meets individually with students and with parents to help them to identify a list of potential schools to investigate. The team goes on to prepare student profiles and recommendations, complete school forms and help the children with their writing and interview skills.
Each spring the Head meets with current Fifth Grade parents to review the admission time line, application protocols and critical aspects of the process which lies ahead for their student the following fall.
