If you haven’t already, create an account on Ravenna-Hub and fill out your Student Profile. Once this is complete, go to the School Directory and select “Lick-Wilmerding High School”. Click “Apply” (don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you have to apply). Then select Inquiry Form. Fill this out and you will receive an email with a code which you can use to register for events on Ravenna-Hub.
Step 2: Learn about LWHS & Register for Events (optional)
The final deadline for submission is Thursday, January 12, 2023 by 11:59pm.
The courtesy submission date for Part I of the application is Thursday, December 1, 2022. Submitting the Inquiry Form and Part I - Parent/Guardian Application will prompt an email invitation for the student to register for an interview.
Should the application fee be a hardship for your family, please click here for information about fee waivers. Find more information here about fees associated with applying to LWHS.
The student interview is an opportunity for our faculty or admissions staff members to learn more about the unique perspective you will bring to the LWHS community. No preparation is needed for the interview.
LWHS offers two interview dates:
Saturday, January 7, 2023
Saturday, January 21, 2023
After the Admissions Office receives the Inquiry Form, Part I - Parent/Guardian Application and the application fee, the student will receive a registration code via email to register for a student interview. Interview registration will be available on Ravenna beginning November 1.
Final deadline for submission is Thursday, January 12, 2023 by 11:59pm. Both the Student Application and Student Activity and Interest Form must be submitted. Applicants only need to fill out the Student Activity and Interest Form once for all Bay Area Independent High Schools using Ravenna.
Step 6: Submit Principal/Counselor, English, and Math Teacher Recommendations
Please request a recommendation from your teachers by early November so they have plenty of time to complete the recommendations. The final deadline for submission is Thursday, January 12, 2023 by 11:59pm. We will contact you by January 19, 2023 if recommendation forms are still missing. There is no penalty to the student if the recommendation forms are not submitted by the deadline.
The Principal/Counselor Recommendation form is required and should be completed by the applicant's current principal or counselor.
The English Teacher Recommendation form is required and should be completed by the applicant's 8th grade English teacher.
The Math Teacher Recommendation form is required and should be completed by the applicant's 8th grade math teacher.

For the 2022–2023 academic year, please submit the first 2 quarters of the year, the first semester, or the first trimester (depending on your school calendar).
If your 8th grade fall semester or trimester grades will not be completed by January 19, 2023, please ask your school's registrar to send them to our Admissions Office as soon as they are available.

Please note that we observe "Quiet Week" along with other Bay Area Independent High Schools, as outlined in our shared Principles of Good Practice. This means that we will not initiate contact with families or hold recruiting events between the decision mailing date and the enrollment contract deadline. This is intended to provide students and their families undisturbed space and time to make their decision.
