The Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School (O-School) offers rolling admissions for its Therapeutic Day Program. Most admissions coincide with the beginning and end of the academic terms. However, the O-School continues to evaluate applications throughout the year as spaces become available and as the needs of families and school districts arise.
At some point during the process, it is expected that the family and prospective student will visit the program for an interview, allowing the family and O-School personnel to get to know one another. The O-School does not admit students until the team has reviewed the referral information and interviewed the applicant directly. No students are admitted without knowing the nature of the O-School’s programs and its expectations.
