• Admission Update

    Released on March 30, 2020

    Dear Applicants and their Parents and Guardians,

    Today at approximately 4:30 p.m., Blackstone Valley Tech sent out notifications via email to all of the applicants for 9th grade admission.

    Given our mode of communication for distributing admission status letters this year is via email, if any of our applicants did not receive notification due to any email address issues, please contact us directly at admissions@valleytech.k12.ma.us to receive your admission correspondence.

    During this time of statewide closures, we are operating our admission department remotely, thus we are only reachable via email for questions during this time.

    • Applications for Upperclassman (Grades 10, 11 & 12) are now due on May 15, 2020.  Please stay tuned to this website for updates on 10th, 11th and 12th grade admission applications.

     

    Released on March 18, 2020

    Dear Applicants and their Parents and Guardians,

    As we face the new reality of managing our school functions from remote locations, we are facing a short delay in our annual timeline for admissions.

    Our admission process is a comprehensive collection of data for your student’s 7th and 8th grade years along with individual interviews. As a result, it takes a good amount of time to load that information into our system. We were in the final week of inputting our data when we were issued the school closure order by the State.  Thus, we are facing a delay in the distribution of our acceptance letters.  Today, we are able to remotely re-establish the ability to input data to complete the admission process.  We plan on working diligently during this time to complete the admission process.

    Although we are unsure at this time if you will receive a physical letter or if this communication will come via email, it is our target to get this correspondence into your hands the first week in April. During the time leading up to our admission notices, please refer to our Admission page on the BVT website for up-to-date status information on the release of the letters. It will have updated notices on dates and timelines.

    Understandably, this delay adds more anxiety to the wait. However, we are committed to completing the process as quickly as possible to support your ability to make plans for your student’s high school plans.

    As we have seen, each day brings new developments, directives, and guidelines; we will continue to keep you informed during this time. Please be well, and stay healthy.

    • Incoming Freshmen Testing schedule for Saturday, April 4th has been Postponed to TBA
    • Applications for Upperclassman (Grades 10, 11 & 12) are now due on May 15, 2020.
