Initial inquiries and applications are welcome at any time during the year. After reviewing the Admission Application and provided materials, the Admissions staff assesses whether the child may be an appropriate candidate for the Grove School program.
We expect that the family and the prospective student will visit our program. This interview is an informal process in which the family and the Grove School personnel can get to know one another. A tour will be provided by a current Grove student so that the family and child can get a student's perspective of daily life.
Final decisions on admissions are made by the Admissions Committee, which consists of the Director of Admissions, President and CEO, Executive Director, Associate Directors, Medical Director, Principal, and other appropriate administrative staff. Included in the decision is the prospective student's interest and motivation to become a part of the Grove community with its emphasis on growth and change. Another important factor is our assessment of the family's commitment and willingness to be a positive force in their child's treatment.
Grove School operates with a rolling admissions process. The majority of our therapeutic boarding school admissions begin in September; however we continue to evaluate applications as spaces become open.
