Required Items

The following items must be postmarked or submitted electronically by the appropriate application deadline date (see Application Timetable above).

• The School Report completed by your guidance counselor.

• An official transcript of your high school academic record attached to the School Report.

• A teacher evaluation completed by someone who has taught you in a college preparatory course in your junior or senior year.

• Score reports of ACT or SAT-I tests may be sent from the respective testing services or included on a student’s high school transcript. We use highest composite ACT score or highest combination of SAT-1 Critical Reading and Math scores. Students are encouraged to report all ACT and SAT-1 scores, knowing only the best composite scores will be used in the admission process.

• Midyear Report of grades received in courses taken during the first semester of your senior year (for Regular Decision applicants only).

• The ED Agreement is required of Early Decision applicants only. This binding contract indicates the applicant and his or her family understands the terms and conditions of their application plan.

• Optional Items may include samples of work or an interview. An interview and campus visit is strongly encouraged. If you submit any creative samples you have done, please send only copies, slides or photographs of your work, as they will not be returned.

Is Early Decision Right for You?

At some point in their college search, many competitive high-school students consider applying to a college under an Early Decision (ED) plan. At Centre, applying Early Decision is recommended for students who, through careful reflection and research, have identified Centre College as more than just their first choice college—it’s their ideal fit college. They simply couldn’t see themselves happier anywhere else.

We want students who have determined that our personal approach to the liberal arts is what they want. We’re looking for students who are excited to prepare for lives of work and service in a global context; who thrive in a collaborative community that values intense academic challenge and support; who do more than seize opportunities, they create them.
