Our admissions 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 in Grades Kindergarten - 12 with a primary diagnosis of a language-based learning difference such as dyslexia. In Grades 6 - 12, a diagnosis of ADHD without a language-based learning difference will also be considered where the student’s executive functioning skills or attention difficulties compromise the ability to learn or perform academically. An applicant’s cognitive ability (Full Scale Intelligence Quotient determined by a psychologist) must fall in the average to superior range. Our program requires that students have the intellectual ability to acquire information and move forward in our curriculum.
ADMISSIONS PROCESS 2020-2021:
- Online Inquiry
- Psychological Educational Evaluation - A comprehensive psychological educational evaluation completed by a licensed psychologist within the past two years is required to determine whether our program is suited to your child’s needs. Please call if you need a referral for an evaluation. Preferred testing includes: WISC V or WPPSI IV, WJ-IV, CTOPP II, and BASC-3.
- Virtual Parent Meeting
- Teacher and Professional Recommendations

- Informal Student Assessment - Applicants meet virtually one-on-one with a member of The Fletcher School team for an informal assessment of familiar reading, spelling, written expression, and math skills. We want your child’s first experience with Fletcher to be one of comfort and ease.
- Applicant Visit - If placement seems appropriate, the applicant is invited for a one to two-day student visit, during which The Fletcher School teachers assist in evaluating educational needs as well as other factors affecting a possible placement.
Applicants will be notified by May 31st for applications received by April 1st. Any openings after June 1st will be considered through our rolling admissions process. Openings are determined after the completion of the re-enrollment of our current students.
