3. Interview: You will be contacted within one week of application receipt to arrange
an interview with you, your child, and an admissions staff person. This 60-90 minute meeting will review your child’s needs, provide time for questions, and give your child an opportunity to see the school.
4. Outside information: After the interview, the admissions evaluator will receive permission from you to contact one or more professionals who know your child well in order to obtain information from their point of view. Generally this will include your child’s most recent teacher.
5. The Decision: Assuming the evaluator has heard from the professional(s) mentioned above, you will be contacted by the evaluator within 7-14 days of the evaluation with the admissions decision. In some cases the committee may decide that one of our other schools is better suited to meet the student’s needs. In that case, admission to that alternate school may be offered.
6. Enrollment: This includes completing all the necessary forms for enrollment. The student can usually start school shortly thereafter.
