Once application is submitted:

The admissions director reviews an application only when a complete packet has been submitted. If we feel that TSS can meet your child’s needs, we then invite your son or daughter for an interview and one-day school visit.

After the visit, the admissions committee meets to thoroughly assess the potential fit between the student and our programs, which are designed to help him or her with ADHD, dyslexia, and other diagnosed learning disabilities. Decision letters and enrollment contracts are mailed within two weeks.

Upon acceptance, your student’s placement for the following school year is secured when you sign an enrollment contract and provide a nonrefundable tuition deposit of $8,500.
