School Application

Admissions explained

Our program is unique because it's completely based on your child's needs.  We ask that you call the school director regarding placement and admissions information. 

Shady Oaks considers for enrollment students who:

  • are age seven to fourteen

  • are in need of remedial help with academics in order to return to a traditional classroom and be successful

  • intelligence scores in the average range

  • may have dyslexia, processing delays, learning disabilities, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder​

It is important that students be diagnosed by a licensed psychologist and that the report is made available to the school so that a learning plan can be developed.

Admissions is a simple process and often includes a phone conversation, a parent tour and meeting, and a classroom visit with your child. We begin planning your child's curriculum and steps toward increased self esteem and success.


Your child's visit to the classroom will include the teacher spending time with the student in a relaxed and informal setting while observing responses, behaviors, and educational strengths and weaknesses.  After meeting with the student, the teacher and school director will discuss a learning plan with the parents. Upon Acceptance at Shady Oaks, the registration fee is required along with the enrollment forms.
