Grade Eight Applicants
All interested students can obtain a Keefe Tech application from their middle school guidance office, the Keefe Tech Guidance Department, or from the links below. Students and their parents may also complete an online application by using the link below. Completed applications should be returned to the applicant's middle school counselor or directly to the Keefe Tech Guidance Department.
All in-district eighth grade applicants will participate in an interview at their middle school beginning in January or February. Interview days will be coordinated between Keefe Tech's Admissions Department and each middle school guidance department. Our priority deadline for applications for the 2018-2019 school year is January 15, 2019. Students may still apply after this date, and acceptances will be issued on a rolling basis until programs are at capacity.
All accepted students will receive information about additional transition programming being offered at Keefe Tech including: Dinner with a Teacher Night in April, Accepted Students Day in June, and Freshman Step-Up Day in August. Our goal is for all accepted students to have the support to make a successful transition to high school. Please contact our Admissions/Guidance Department with any questions or concerns about the application process. We look forward to continuing to work with all eighth grade students and their families for a positive transition to Keefe Tech!
Keefe Tech operates on a rolling admissions basis for students who apply throughout the school year, as well as for high school students who are interested in transferring. Transfer applicants are reviewed once an application is submitted either online, by being dropped off at our Guidance/Admissions office or sent by mail. Student records are required to complete a transfer application. Records needed vary depending on the grade level of the applicant, but will include, grades, school attendance, and school discipline from the current and previous school year.
Once an application is complete someone from our Admissions Office will contact the applicant and family to schedule an interview on our campus. Prospective students and families can contact our Admissions Counselor, Faith Chrisom at 508.516.2305 or email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
The priority application deadline for grade 8 students who are applying for next year's fall admission is January 15, 2019. Our goal is to interview all in-district applicants who apply by this deadline prior to the February school vacation at their middle school.
We do accept applications after this time on a rolling admissions basis, meaning students will be interviewed after they apply and admission will be offered on a space available basis.
Prospective students who reside outside of our 5 in-district communities of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton and Natick are able to apply for admission to Keefe Tech and will be reviewed on a space available basis. The same criteria is reviewed prior to admission. Out-of-district applicants are required to connect with their district's Superintendent's Office regarding the approval of a Chapter 74 non-resident form. Keefe Tech does not have any control of an out-of-district community approving this form regardless if an applicant meets our admissions criteria.
