How to determine the date of entry for Common App?

So, I'm filling out my Common App and I came across the 'Date of Entry' section. I'm not exactly sure what they mean by this. Is it the date I started high school or something else? A little guidance on this would be super helpful!

The 'Date of Entry' section on the Common App refers to the date when you first began attending your current school (the high school you're graduating from). So, this would typically be the starting date of your freshman year at your high school. If you transferred schools at some point during your high school career, then the date of entry would be the date you began attending the school you are currently at. To find the exact date, you can check your school records or consult your high school counselor or registrar. They should be able to provide you with that information. It's important to be accurate in your reporting, so make sure to verify the date before submitting your application. Good luck with your college applications!
