Admission Process

1
Tour and Application

 

 

Preferably, a tour of the campus you are interested in will have been given before an application has been submitted.  If not, a tour is strongly recommended as soon as possible to gain familiarity and understanding of Elizabeth Academy/Garfield School before moving forward with the admissions process. To schedule a tour, click on the following link  Online Application Form.

To begin the application process, click on the following link to fill out and submit an Online Application Form and pay the $25 application fee. We also require any evaluations, school records and any other information that you feel will help us get better acquainted with your child.  Once your application process is complete and all forms have been submitted, we will contact you to schedule your family interview and placement screening visit.

Placement Screening (Infant - Early Childhood)
Placement Screening & Assessment (Lower Elementary - High School)

 

 

The placement screening is for all students and intended for us to get to know you and your child and for you to ask any questions you may have about our programs. It is also a time for us to make an informal assessment of your child’s needs so that we may place him/her in the optimal classroom environment. The placement screening will be a $50 fee (payable via cash, check or credit card).  

A developmental screening may also be scheduled at the same time if you are aware of, or concerned about the possibility of any areas of needed support your child might have.  If during the initial placement screening process, we find that an additional screening will be necessary to fully evaluate your child’s needs, a developmental screening will be coordinated either at the same time or on a different date.  The developmental testing measures a broad spectrum of possible needs (Speech and Language, Occupational therapy, Physical therapy and Social/Emotional) and is administered by qualified experts in these areas.  There is an additional fee for developmental testing.
