School Profile

A High School Profile is a record put together by your school (usually a brochure or flyer) that includes information about the student body and the types of classes offered by your school, such as AP, DC, IB, etc. It usually lists figures like graduation rates and other notable facts about the school, though each is different. Your counselor should submit the School Profile through the Common App School Report, although you can also upload this document yourself from the Academic page of your application.

A high  GPA  is impressive, but it's not the only thing that matters regarding college admissions. Admissions officers also pay attention to the rigor of your course selections about what your school offers. For example, if your school provides 15 different AP/dual credit options but only took a few, it might not show that you've challenged yourself enough. It's important to take advanced courses as you progress through high school to prepare for the rigor of college. Admissions officers know this information because they receive a School Profile and your transcript
