• Class of 2023-- College Application Process   



    You must give the guidance office 15 school days (3 weeks) to process transcript and recommendation requests. 

    Step One:Complete college applications. Use the college's online application, The Common Application, or the Coalition Application.

           Information you may need to complete the Education section of the Common Application:

    • Class size:  503 students
    • We have a weighted grading scale of 4.0.
    • We do not rank officially.  Answer "N/A" to the ranking question.
    • Our CEEB (College Board) code is:  391045
    • You can find your current cumulative GPA on your Unofficial Transcript, in your Student Portal (under 'Reports').
    • List your 9th grade classes under "Central Bucks HS West" with your other courses (you cannot select Lenape or Tohickon MS). 

    Important:  When filling out the Common App, DO NOT LIST YOUR COUNSELORS OR TEACHERS AS RECOMMENDERS. We are a "Naviance School," which means we send recommendations through Naviance, not Common App.  


    Step Two:Your Parent/Guardian must submit a Release of Records Authorization (this form will be available on August 1, 2022). This form is required before you are able to add colleges to your Naviance list, and request your transcript to be sent. Please be aware, this form needs to be processed before you are able to submit transcript requests (generally within 1-2 school days). 

    Step Three:

    Add schools to your "Colleges I'm Applying To" list in Naviance.

    If needed, request a Teacher and/or Counselor recommendation. Be sure to use this Step-by-Step guide for requesting Recommendations.

    The Counselor Recommendation Survey is currently available in Naviance; you may begin working on this prior to school

    Step Four: Request your Transcripts through Naviance (Available 9/7/22).  Use this Step-by-Step guide for sending Transcripts. College must be in your "Colleges I'm Applying To" list before you can send a transcript.

    You must give the Guidance Office 15 School Days (3 weeks) to process transcript and recommendation requests. Familiarize yourself with application due dates, and submit all required forms on time!  


    Step Five:  Send your official scores, if required, from College Board (for SAT's) or ACT Student (for ACT's).

    Be sure to check the college's website for "Undergraduate Admission Requirements," as many have sent emails stating they will be waiving the SAT/ACT requirement this year. 

    Once you've submitted requests, and you want to see whether your materials have been sent, you can use this guide shown How to Check the Status of Your Transcripts and Teacher Recommendations in Naviance.
