Here at Alpha School, we strive to make the process of determining if your child is a good fit for our school as stress free and productive as possible.

The primary steps listed below will serve as a guide for you to understand the admissions process.

  • Call is made by the Case Manager from the district or by the parent of the child to the school inquiring about a tour
  • Appointment is made for a visit and student records are submitted by the Case Manager for review.
  • Principal explains program to the Parent and or Case Manager. The Parent and child and or Case Manager are taken on a tour of the school.
  • Parent and or Case Manager are given time to observe in the classes in their child’s age range. If appropriate the child interacts with the class.
  • Wrap up discussion takes place after the tour. Brochures and other supportive information are given to the parent and Case Manager.
  • A collaborative conversation occurs between the parent and Case Manager to determine the appropriateness of placement and will inform the Principal of the decision. If placement is accepted then an IEP is received and a start date is determined.


We look forward to meeting you and touring our school program so you can experience our welcoming family atmosphere.
