Admissions Process

Vincent Smith School considers for admission students who shows promise of academic success and/or in need of services such as reading, speech, or OT. 

Students with emotional, behavioral or disciplinary problems will not be considered. 

Three-Step Screening Process

After an initial campus visit, you and your child will meet informally with the Head of School and the Dean of Students. Next, your child will be invited to meet with select teachers for a placement evaluation. In some cases, your child might be asked to attend classes for a half or full day as a VSS student to assess their appropriate grouping. 

The admissions committee will take into consideration:

  • Application form
  • Individual Education Plan (IEP)
  • Psychological and educational testing
  • Other relevant evaluations that might assist us in the admissions process
