Three Steps to Admission

If you’re ready to apply, contact us today and we will help you through the steps to admission.

Step 1: Initial Connection

  • Discuss your child’s needs and past experiences
  • Provide records and evaluations, including a full, current (completed within the past 2 years) psychoeducational evaluation

Step 2: Pre-Admission Evaluation

  • Teacher recommendation form and release form (May be determined based on individual basis)
  • Following initial review of submitted documents, additional documentation may be requested
  • Interview, tour, and shadow day may be scheduled

Step 3: Committee Review and Decision

  • Admission Committee meets and reviews previous evaluations, as well as student shadow information, and makes a decision whether or not admission is appropriate.
  • At this point, you will be contacted to discuss the results of the decision.
  • If your child is admitted, we schedule time with you to come in with your completed admissions paperwork and registration payment.
  • Schedule your child’s start date at Tampa Day School!
  • A parent-student orientation is held on the first day of enrollment.
