Applying to High Schools

October 2022

The applications for both Bergen Technical and Bergen Academies are now open. Students/parents may apply online. The application deadline for Bergen Technical-Paramus is January 15, 2023 and the application deadline for Bergen Technical-Teterboro and Bergen Academies is November 30, 2022. Once the application is submitted, you will then be asked to provide teacher recommender and counselor information through your online account. Teacher recommendations and counselor supplied information are due separately/at a later date than the student application (ex: the student application for Bergen Academies is due by November 30th, and the teacher recommendations/counselor information is due by January 6th). The online application has several components and it is advised that students/parents begin completing it well before the deadline and carefully read the user guides provided by each school for specific directions. Important information (including user guides) for each school can be found here:

Upon completion of the application, you will be asked to supply school counselor and teacher recommender information. This will then prompt an email to be sent to myself and any teachers indicated, asking us to complete our components of the application process. It is extremely important that all names and email addresses are entered correctly. Please also remind your student to speak to their teachers and myself before sending recommendation requests, as we will need to accept the request once we receive it by email.

Private/Parochial High Schools

If your child is planning to apply for admission to any private or parochial schools, this information should be communicated to me as soon as possible. Many of these schools will have different deadlines that are quickly approaching. Please provide myself and any teacher recommenders a minimum of three weeks notice of the application/paperwork deadlines. It is our goal to have the appropriate time needed to submit our materials prior to the deadline and in a way that best reflects your child’s abilities and potential at their desired school.
