Schedule a shadow visit

We suggest that you schedule a shadow visit. During a shadow visit, students spend a day with one of our elected Student Ambassadors attending classes, meeting teachers, getting to know our students, and enjoying a walking tour of our beautiful historic campus. Many Piney Woods students say the shadow visit was the best part of their application process. To schedule a shadow visit, contact Ronald Huddleston, director of admission, at 601-845-2214 ext.2223

Submit academic & discipline records

Complete the student record release consent form, which can be downloaded here, and submit it to your student's current school. The school will send us a copy of the applicant’s complete records, including grades, testing results, immunization records, and attendance reports.

Obtain letters of recommendation

The applicant’s current English Teacher and Math Teacher should complete the online teacher recommendation form, and the Guidance Counselor/Principal should complete the online transcript request and school report form.
