Step 3: Review 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.)
  • Signed Request for School Records Form
  • Signed Teacher Recommendation Form

Once the above materials have been received, they will be processed and reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Documents and forms must be submitted through our admissions solution, Ravenna.

Step 4: Admissions Testing

After initial review by the Admissions Committee, qualified candidates will be invited for admissions testing at Bodine School. Testing will be conducted at Bodine School and will take between 45 minutes to an hour to complete. The results of a student’s testing will then be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Some admissions candidates may also be asked to come in for a visit day. While visiting, the student will follow a regular school schedule and may be pulled for additional assessments.

Step 5: Enrollment and Waiting Pool

If your child meets admission criteria and space is available in the program, Bodine School will offer an enrollment contract for the 2024-2025 school year. Enrollment contracts for new students will be sent February 15, 2024. Once the contract, tuition deposit, and tuition agreement are submitted, your child’s enrollment is considered complete.

If your child meets admission criteria but space is not available in the program, your child will be placed in a waiting pool. In the event that a space becomes available, your child will then be offered an enrollment contract for the 2024-2025 school year.

If a seat does not become available for next school year, families are welcome to apply for the 2025-2026 school year beginning in October of 2024.
