Applications to John Hay Architecture & Design and Early College are now available!

Turn-in completed applications to John Hay Architecture & Design and Early College as soon as you get them completed.   We will send all necessary documents together in one envelope with completed applications.

Attached you will find a calendar for the month of November and some important dates in regards to high schools.

Entrance Exams-

Parochial Schools- Check the dates for the entrance exams for the Parochial (Catholic) Schools, remember each school has its own test and test date so visit the school websites for specific details.  Please ask Mrs. Durr for a copy of the practice test if you do not already have one.

Independent Schools-Students can prepare for the ISEE using the practice test.  Please ask Mrs. Durr for a copy of the practice tests if you do not already have one.  The ISEE is usually tied to scholarship money.  It is better to take the test on one of the earlier dates before dollars have been distributed.  You can visit the school website to register for the test.

Financial Aid: All financial aid forms are now available.  Many schools have financial due dates in November and December.  Financial aid forms must be completed by the due date in order to be considered for Financial Aid.  CLA will be hosting a financial aid workshop November 11th @ 6 pm.  Please see attached flyer for more information.

CLA Website: Please visit for future newsletters, calendars and helpful information about the high school process.
