Admissions

The Speech Academy Admissions

The admission process to The Speech Academy begins
with an inquiry from school districts, parents, agencies
or physicians by submission of school records to the
Director. Parents and their representatives are invited
to tour The Speech Academy and to observe the school
program. At this meeting, information about the student
and The Speech Academy is shared and parents are given
an application form.

After The Speech Academy’s review of all
information provided, the applicant and family
participate in an Intake Interview to assess the
student’s speech/language, academic, social,
and behavioral needs. Upon completion of the

Intake Interview, the administrative and teaching
staff will meet to determine if the student will
benefit from The Speech Academy’s program
and community. The enrollment date is determined
by the Planning and Placement team placement
meeting, the availability of an opening, and the
determination of a peer group for the student.

The Speech Academy will admit students of any
race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the
rights, privileges, programs and activities generally
provided or made available to students at the
school; will not discriminate on the basis of race,
color, national or ethnic origin in administration
of its educational policies, admissions policies,
scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and
other school administered programs.
