College Application Process

Steps for Applying to Common Application Schools

  1. Fill out one application for all Common Application schools at www.commonapp.org.
  2. Invite your counselor to complete secondary school report (SSR) by sending Mrs. Sitto or Mrs. Tankersley an email. Your transcript request will not be processed until your counselor has accepted your online invitation from Common App.
  3. To request a transcript through Parchment, sign-up at www.parchment.com.
  4. Enter your Common App ID # along with your identifying information.
  5. Important: Do not look up your Common Application schools in the first tab labeled Academic Destinations. You must request your transcripts by clicking the Common Application Tab, which is third tab in. You should see all the schools you are applying to with the Common App. Only one transcript request is needed for all the Common App. Schools.
  6. All students who require a counselor or teacher’s recommendation, please complete the Letter of Recommendation Form. The form is found outside the counseling office.

“This high school experience is like none other you can get anywhere. There is joy and comradery and the girls are happy and excel. They are being supported and encouraged by staff. You can watch a girl come in who had a bad experience elsewhere, bloom here and become a different girl in a short time. Can’t say enough good about it. Thank God the founders had this vision and followed through with it. Well needed and we are very thankful!”

SCA Parent

“[Teachers] care about the success of each student. They come early to help students and stay after school if necessary. They are a super dedicated faculty.”

SCA Parent

“The community service, the focus on virtuous living, and the sisterhood really instills compassion and respect for all of humanity.”

SCA Parent

“SCA is authentically and unapologetically Catholic. It’s excellence in academics and athletics is rooted in its mission to pass on the beauty of the Catholic faith in a way that is relevant to the modern world. The result is a constant focus on the character and virtue of its students, challenging them to be the best version of themselves not just academically, but spiritually as well.”

“SCA proves you can educate young women to both get into Heaven and Harvard!”

SCA Parent

“As a graduate of this school, I can attest to not only the strong education I received from SCA but also the strong foundation I was given in which I could build my own faith upon. I felt fully prepared for the ‘real world’ both academically and spiritually.” 

MaryKatherine

“A crazy amount of extra curricular options-basically if you are passionate about it [SCA] will find a way to help you bring it to fruition!”

Leighanne

“An excellent school that brings the girls together more like sisters rather than friends.”

Zina

“Beautiful school!”

Rachel

“An excellent community for families that want to stay involved! Everyone has a different opinion and all students, staff, and faculty are respectful of it. I have never been in an environment that was so inviting and welcoming. It is easy to find a home in this school because the staff genuinely care about you and want you to succeed. It really is a beautiful place and a great experience. I am very lucky to have gone through high school there.”
