The admissions process begins by scheduling a meeting with the Admissions Director. The purpose of the meeting is to obtain a developmental history of the prospective student, determine strengths, weaknesses and current needs. During this time, the Admissions Director and staff will describe aspects of Vanguard’s program, provide a tour of the school and answer any questions the parent or guardian may have. If Vanguard appears to be a good fit for the prospective student, a visit with the child is scheduled.
After the visit by the prospective student, the treatment team (director, teachers and therapists) meet to determine if the child’s needs can be met by Vanguard. This determination is communicated to the parents or guardians, usually within 1-2 days.
