Our admission process is designed to work in partnership with you to determine whether your student will benefit from the program we provide. In addition, it allows us the opportunity to get to know your student and family. Based on the information we receive through each step of our admissions process, we are able to determine if our program will adequately meet the needs of your student and empower them to reach their full potential.
The Fletcher School accepts students who 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.
ADMISSION PROCESS 2023-2024:
