The Admissions Process

Initial Inquiry

During the initial intake call, information is gathered and a Parent Tour is scheduled to view our facilities and learn more about our program. We ask that all requested paperwork be sent to our Admissions Coordinator via e-mail prior to the tour in order to evaluate how we can best serve your child.

Parent Tour

While touring the facility, you will have the chance to speak with our Admissions Coordinator about your child’s needs and how we can accommodate your son or daughter. If interested, we will schedule a day/time for a Student Evaluation.

Student Evaluation

The potential student will have the opportunity of touring our school with our Admissions Coordinator. The student's academic, communication and social skills will be assessed. Within 48 hours of the student evaluation, the Admissions Coordinator will call you to discuss the results.

Proposal of Services

Within one week of the student evaluation, the admissions committee will determine your child’s eligibility to our program and, if eligible, a proposal of services will be written for the student to be submitted to the Puerto Rico Department of Education.

Free Appropriate Public Education

Federal law, IDEA, states that a free appropriate public education (FAPE) must be available to any individual child who needs special education and related services, and may require public school systems to pay for private placements, like Gersh Academy, when their own programs or classrooms are not deemed appropriate. We encourage you to visit http://idea.ed.gov for more information.

Program Enrollment & Registration

Once the purchase of educational services is approved for the students, an enrollment package will be given to the parent or custodian. All enrollment paperwork must be completed and returned to our Admissions Coordinator. A start date will be determined, and you and your child can prepare for their first day of school
