Our application process is designed to learn as much as possible about your child’s academic potential as well as their strengths and weaknesses.
To help us understand your child’s unique learning needs, we seek information from many sources including parents, current teachers, tutors, therapists, and a licensed psychologist. Admission to The Schenck School is determined by a number of factors, the most important being the degree to which your child’s academic success is caused by a difficulty with written language.
The Admission Process
- Parent submits completed online application and required documents and evaluations, a current psycheducational evaluation, an unassisted writing sample, and $85 application fee (payable by electronic check or credit card).
- Parent authorizes student’s current school to complete and submit teacher/administrator evaluations and transcripts.
- The Admissions Committee reviews completed application. Only appropriate candidates for enrollment for The Schenck School are screened. Screening will include age-appropriate tasks on reading, writing, and spelling, and standardized, diagnostic testing.
- Parents will receive a letter from the Admissions Office indicating the results of the screening within one month of the evaluation.
- Notification of the Admissions Committee’s decision is made on an individual basis and upon availability for the following school year. Decisions are made through the year, with final decisions made by mid-April.
The Schenck School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sexual orientation, color, nationality, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, tuition assistance programs, or other administered programs.
The Schenck School respects your privacy and will never release your contact, check, or credit card information.
