Our students have a diagnosis of dyslexia or other related language-based learning differences. These differences sometimes make it difficult for them to learn by traditional instructional methods. Learning strengths and areas for growth vary from child to child. Applicants will be considered for admission based on the following criteria:
- Diagnosis of dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia or other related language-based learning difference.
- Average or above average intelligence as measured by an individual intelligence test or potentially average intelligence when the professional indicates that the overall score not represent the true potential of the student due to overriding factors (such as language or auditory processing).
- We do not accept students who have a diagnosis of Autism, Asperger’s, or emotional or behavioral problems.
All prospective families must participate in a school tour and meet with the admission director before applying to Swift School. Applicants will be asked to submit the following supplemental materials:
- Psychoeducational evaluation (completed in the last three years)
- Transcript Release form
- Teacher Evaluation form
- Speech/Language or Occupational Therapy (only if your child is currently receiving services)
