Admissions Process


  1. Parents are asked to fax, mail, or email the prospective student’s current psycho-educational testing prior to an initial meeting with the Head of School and a tour. This gives the admissions committee an opportunity to learn more about your child. Upon Sandhills receiving the psycho-educational testing, parents are then able to schedule an appointment to meet with administration to tour the school, discuss the prospective student’s educational needs, and to learn more about Sandhills.

  2. Submit an application along with the $75 application fee.

  3. Schedule a student visit.  Student visits are typically scheduled for 8:20 a.m.-11:45 a.m.   Visiting students have the opportunity to shadow a current Sandhills student, visit four class periods, and take part in a scheduled break in order to get to know other Sandhills students.  Student visits are always scheduled after the initial parent visit.

  4. Have your child’s current teacher complete our teacher recommendation form.

  5. Provide current school transcripts, health records, and immunization forms.  Parents must sign a release form included in the admission packet in order for Sandhills to obtain these records.

  6. Provide other service reports as applicable, such as occupational or speech therapy.
