Academic Reference


Early College Innovation Fund
Jay Baker at Kettering, MD.

Do you need to write or request a sample reference letter from a teacher? Here is a sample academic reference letter from a teacher to review.

Sample Academic Reference for a Student

Dear Ms. Jones:

I am writing this reference at the request of Katie Kingston who is applying for the Summer Communications Program at XYZ University.

I have known Katie for two years in my capacity as a teacher at Smithtown Middle School. Katie took English and Spanish from me and earned superior grades in those classes. Based on Katie's grades, attendance and class participation, I'd rate Katie's academic performance in my class as superior.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Katie Kingston for this academic program. If her performance in my class is any indication of how she will succeed, Katie will be a positive addition to the program. If you should need any additional information you can feel free to contact me at 555-5555 or by email at email@email.com anytime.
