Day Program Process

Green Chimneys Admissions is the point of entry for children and families, and all school-based referrals to the therapeutic day school program.

Admissions Specialists, together with families, collaborate with each child’s home school district through the Committee of Special Education (CSE) to ensure that educational and related services goals of the Individual Education Plan (IEP) are met. Once the Admissions Specialists review the referral, an interview and tour is scheduled.

Process Overview

  1. Referral is received from the school district and reviewed.
  2. If program seems appropriate, child is interviewed with parent or guardian and receives a tour of the campus, dorms and farm & wildlife center.
  3. Once a child is accepted Admissions partners with parents and referring agencies to collect all necessary documentation needed to facilitate an admission.
  4. When all of the proper paperwork is collected, a date of admission is scheduled for the child.
