You will need to ask a school official to review your application. This review must be completed in order for you to qualify for the program. The school official can be an unrelated teacher, counselor, or administrator at your high school. You’ll need to enter your reviewer’s full name and email address on the application, so it’s a good idea to check with him or her before you start.
