How to Apply to the Churchill School

Thank you for your interest in The Churchill School and Center. We are happy your family is considering Churchill for your child.  The Admissions Office is here to help determine if Churchill is the right educational environment where your child will find comfort and success. The admissions process begins with a completed application. Please follow the steps below:

List of 4 items.

  • Submit an Application

    • Create an account for our online Admissions Portal.
    • Complete the online application and submit the $75.00 non-refundable application fee.
    • Upload your child’s Neuropsychological or Psychoeducational Evaluation, completed within 2 years (required)
    • Upload your child’s IEP (if applicable)
    • Upload supporting evaluations (Speech, OT, progress reports, etc.) (if applicable)
    • Upload a completed Release Form, downloadable in your child’s checklist (required)
    • Request that your child’s teacher completes a questionnaire by inputting an email address through the portal. Additional providers may submit forms as well, but the teacher questionnaire is required.
  • Application Review

    • Once the supporting documents have been received by the Admissions Office, the application is reviewed and an initial determination is made.
    • If it is determined your child might be appropriate for our program, we will move forward with scheduling Interviews and Assessments.
    • We interview only when we anticipate a space.  For students that are applying for a grade with no anticipated spaces, any student who appears appropriate after our initial review will be added to a waitlist.  ONLY when space becomes available will we schedule interviews.
    After review, we may determine Churchill is not the appropriate educational setting for your child.  In that case, we will work with you as best we can to assist in finding the right educational environment.
