To write a good admissions letter for high school you will firstly need to create the format and you should make sure you set out your letter in a standard business letter format. If you’re unaware of this particular format, what you need to do is type your address in three or four lines in the left corner at the top of the page. Following that you should miss out one line and then write the date underneath. You should miss out another line and then type the full name of the school board and the address of its residence in a few lines. After that you should skip another line and then write ‘Dear’ followed by the name of the director or chairman of the board. Once you’ve done that you should miss out another line and then proceed with the content of your letter.

The content is the most important part of the letter so you will firstly want to explain who you are and the reasons as to why you are so eager to attend this particular school. You need to be specific in your reasoning so mention specific programs and classes you are interested in or the extra-curricular activities they provide which you can relate to your personal interests and strengths. In addition, if there are classes that you haven’t taken before but have a keen interest in it then make sure you explain that in your letter. Furthermore, it is important that you sell yourself in this letter, so inform them of what you can bring to their school. It is easy to fall into the trap of simply saying "I am a hardworking and dedicated student” but refrain from the clichés because you want to stand out from the other applicants. Be more specific in your qualities and perhaps relay a situation in which you used these positive qualities and how you can adopt them to your school career.

Lastly, you should close your letter with a famous quote from a political leader, historian or popular scholar. This will make you stand out as well as show your intelligence and thirst for knowledge.
