Welcome! The Fletcher School is accepting applications for all grades. Prospective families should email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or submit an online inquiry.
The Fletcher School serves students with Specific Learning Disabilities and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD) (see specific grade level guidelines below).
Our bright and talented students have average to above-average intelligence as defined in a psychological-educational assessment performed by a licensed psychologist. Students must have a diagnosis of a language-based learning difference in reading (dyslexia), written expression (dysgraphia), or math (dyscalculia). Students in grades 6-11 can be accepted with a primary diagnosis of ADHD if it is impacting their academic success.
The Fletcher School cannot serve children whose learning difficulties result from primary emotional or behavioral problems, intellectual disabilities, and/or students who are diagnosed under the classification of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Grade Level Guidelines for Admission
Although a complete psychological-educational evaluation identifying your child “at risk” or diagnosed with a specific learning difference is preferred, we will accept:
- A modified psychological or educational evaluation (e.g., CAIS or ABC Educational Services testing).
- Occupational and/or Speech Therapy evaluations.
- A documented history of pre-academic delays (parent and teacher input required).
- Diagnosis of ADHD without a Specific Learning Disability will be considered when the student’s executive functioning skills or attention difficulties compromise the ability to learn or perform academically.
Grades 2 - 5
Diagnosis of a Specific Learning Disability should be within a three-year period at the time of application. ADHD may not be the primary diagnosis.
Grades 6 - 12
Diagnosis of a Specific Learning Disability should be within a three-year period at the time of application.
Diagnosis of ADHD without a Specific Learning Disability will be considered when the student’s executive functioning skills or attention difficulties compromise the ability to learn or perform academically. The diagnosis is determined by a qualified professional, for example, a neurologist or psychiatrist, and should be current at the time of application.
Grades K - 12
An up-to-date Immunization Record, signed by the student’s physician, is required for all students prior to the first day of school for admission to The Fletcher School. The School only recognizes valid medical exemptions with documentation from a licensed physician. Your child must be current with all North Carolina required immunizations in order to attend The Fletcher School.
