Eligible Students – Parents or school district child study team members who contact Banyan School will speak with a member of the administrative team to discuss a student’s possible eligibility.


Application Process – Applicants must submit records to Banyan School for review by the Admissions Committee.  Records must include a current IEP, educational and psychological testing, and achievement battery.  The Admissions Committee consists of an LDTC, psychologist, and administrator.


Setting Up Parent/Student Appointment – If the review of the records is positive, the parent, student and/or child study team member will be invited for an intake appointment.  This appointment will include a tour of the school, an interview, and a question and answer session.


Student Visit – If the Admission Committee feels that Banyan School is an appropriate placement for the student, the student is invited to visit for 2 to 5 days.


Admissions – Classroom teachers and other staff members evaluate the student’s visit based on classroom participation and behavior.  A successful visit will result in admission to the program. An acceptance letter will be issued to all successful candidates.
