    In order to be considered for the program, you will need 2 references. The first reference must be either a teacher, counselor or someone who knows your skills and abilities in an academic setting.

    The second reference must be an adult that you know personally outside of school, but cannot be a relative. (ie Pastor, Employer, Coach, etc.)

    Please approach both of your references in person and explain that you are interested in the program, and ask if they feel that you would be a good candidate. If they are willing to support you, please ask for their email address, then copy this link, and "paste" it into an email that you send them with your request:


    It will be your responsibility to follow up with your references to make sure that they complete the form on your behalf. We need BOTH references in order for your application to be considered complete.
