The Admissions Process

• INITIAL INQUIRY
During the initial intake call, information is gathered and a Parent Tour is scheduled to view our facilities and learn more about our program. We ask that all requested paperwork be sent to our office prior to the tour in order to evaluate how we can best serve your child.

• PARENT TOUR
While touring the facility, you will have the chance to speak with our Admissions Counselor about your child’s needs and how we can accommodate your son or daughter. If interested, we will schedule a day/time for a Student Evaluation.                             

• STUDENT EVALUATION
The potential student will have the opportunity of touring our school with our Admissions Counselor, and will be observed in both a natural environment and in a classroom setting. Within 48 hours of the student evaluation, the Admissions Counselor will call you to schedule a Student Visit.

• REGISTRATION
All enrollment paperwork must be completed and returned to our Admissions Counselor along with a $500 non-refundable registration fee. A start date will be determined and you and your child can prepare for their first day of school.

• FREE APPROPRIATE PUBLIC EDUCATION
Federal law, IDEA, states that a free appropriate public education (FAPE) must be available to any individual child who needs special education and related services, and may require public school systems to pay for private placements, like Gersh Academy, when their own programs or classrooms are not deemed appropriate. We encourage you to visit http://idea.ed.gov for more information.
