Step 2: Online Application

 To submit an admission application, please apply online.

Step 3: Admission Materials

In addition to the application, admission to Bodine School is based on teacher recommendations, previous school records, and a recent psychoeducational evaluation, as well as results from any other relevant evaluations. Along with the online application, please submit the following directly to our Admissions Office:

  • A copy of psychoeducational testing completed within the past 3 years
  • Copies of other relevant evaluations and reports (speech/language, OT, etc.)

Once the above materials have been received, they will be processed and reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

Step 4: Student Visit

After initial review by the Admissions Committee, qualified candidates will be invited to visit Bodine School. While visiting, the student will follow a regular school schedule and will be screened. Students who apply during the summer months will be scheduled for assessments and may be asked to complete a visit before admission can be determined. The results of a student's visit and screening will then be reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

Step 5: Enrollment and Waiting Pool

 Bodine offers an online enrollment contract to qualified candidates for whom space exists. Enrollment is complete when the enrollment questionnaire, a $500 tuition deposit, and a tuition agreement are submitted online to Bodine. A waiting pool is maintained for qualified applicants when no openings exist. Students in the waiting pool will be admitted as openings occur in the program.


Bodine School welcomes and admits qualified students regardless of race, creed, color, ethnic identity, or place of national origin. Bodine School is designed specifically for high potential students whose primary diagnosis is a specific reading disability. Bodine School does not admit students who struggle in school because of behavioral difficulties, severe attention problems, moderate to severe receptive and expressive language deficits or less than average intellectual abilities.
