Eligibility and Admissions Process

When to Apply

We accept and review applications for new students throughout the year. Most new students are accepted for initial enrollment at the start of the upcoming school year. On occasion, we have unanticipated openings during the course of a school year making it possible to enroll new students mid-year. The number of openings varies depending on the number of students who will be transitioned back to their home school district.

Eligibility for Enrollment

From the initial screening phase to the final selection process, we consider the characteristics and educational needs of each applicant. Importantly, our decision-making process also must factor in the characteristics and instructional needs of our continuing Bridge School students and projected classroom configurations. Each year the eligibility criteria for enrollment at Bridge School changes somewhat, based on a range of variables that become increasingly evident as our continuing students are assigned to classrooms and transition plans for our “graduating” students are confirmed. For example, some years we select applicants who will join students who are chronologically older or younger than other applicants. In other years, we may be looking for students with slightly different age and/or ability profiles to complement or balance our instructional groupings. Therefore, if in a given year we were unable to accept your child for enrollment at Bridge School, you may want to consider re-applying in the future.
