Private School Applications

The guidance office at Wellesley Middle School is happy to help expedite the private school process by sending transcripts and letters of recommendation to private schools.   Wellesley Middle School uses our own standard secondary school recommendation form that we distribute to the Math teacher,  English teacher, and guidance counselor.  We mail the transcripts and letters of recommendation to the private schools. We do not accept electronic requests or use the individual private school recommendation forms. Therefore, please do not submit or email private school forms to teachers directly.  Private schools accept our process.   

In order to expedite this process efficiently, please complete the following steps: 
  • Complete a release form (attached below) and return to Ms. Peg Toce, guidance secretary, Room 312, or by emailing the form to her at tocem@wellesleyps.org.  Our release form includes a provision that parents waive the right of access to the letters of recommendation. 
  • Have your child complete the attached student activity form (attached below) and return to Ms. Toce in room 312, or email it to her attention. This form assists the guidance counselor in completing a recommendation. 
  • Drop off a large (10” x 13”) stamped mailing envelope for each school your child is applying to. Address the envelope(s),  however leave the return address. blank. $2.00 postage should be added to the envelope(s).
  • Submit the release form, envelopes, and student activity form to correspond with the deadline dates below.  Teachers need at least two school weeks upon receipt of the recommendation request to complete the recommendation. Teachers are not expected to complete recommendations over school vacation weeks. 
Most private schools have a January 15 deadline. Due to December vacation , we request that you submit all materials to us by December 10, 2018. If there is a different deadline, please give us materials a month in advance. 

Questions should be directed to  Peg Toce, guidance secretary at tocem@wellesleyps.org or 781-446-6235, ext. 5816. If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Sincerely, 

Kate Mahoney, Department Head of Guidance
