Thank you for your interest in The Schenck School. We look forward to working with you and your family throughout the admissions process. In order to help you learn about The Schenck School, we strongly encourage you to call the School and sign up for a parent tour and classroom observation.
Our application process is designed to help us learn as much as possible about your child’s academic potential, and innate learning style, strengths and weaknesses. To help us understand the student's unique learning needs, the application process seeks information from many sources including the student, the student's parents, the child’s current school, tutors, therapists and a licensed psychologist. Admission to The Schenck School is determined by a number of factors, the most important being that the child’s primary barrier to academic success is caused by a difficulty with written language.
