The Admissions team looks forward to helping you work through each step of the admissions process here at T.C. Harris School & Academy!
Our Admissions Process
Our admissions team conducts an assessment for each referral and inquiry for placement at T.C. Harris School & Academy. We collect documentation, facilitate tours, conduct observations of potential students, and meet with teachers, providers, and other professionals to gather as much information as possible to make an informed decision.
Students must have a documented developmental or intellectual disability to be considered appropriate for placement.
When our assessment is complete, we meet weekly with TCH leadership and go over each potential student to discuss and determine if a referral is appropriate for our program. Our team will work then with the family and referral/funding source to complete all admission paperwork, consents, authorizations, schedule several planning meetings, and work through what Admission Day will look like.
