Information Form and Parent Consultation
The first step is to fill out the information form. Once the information form is submitted, a member of the Admissions Team will email you to schedule a phone consultation.
Parent and Student Visit - Step 1
Your child visits with the Clinical Coordinator for an initial assessment. While the Clinical Coordinator meets with the student, the parents have an opportunity to tour the school and learn more about the program.
Parent and Student Visit - Step 2
The parents meet with the Clinical Coordinator to learn more about the family support the school offers. While the Clinical Coordinator meets with the parent, the student meets with the Executive Director. During this visit, if a current student is available, your student can learn about The Journey School from a peer perspective and choose an activity to do together.
Before scheduling a shadow day, parents are asked to submit the application.
Classroom visits provide your child with an opportunity to experience our classroom setting. The first shadow day is either scheduled as a half-day or full-day. If an additional shadow day is required, we will schedule that with the parents.
During the first shadow visit, the parent is invited to meet with a family consultant to learn more about our wrap-around services that include bi-weekly Family Consultant meetings with parents and a licensed clinician.
If we determine that an existing opening would be a good match for your child's academic, social and emotional needs, then we proceed with enrollment. If, however, it is determined that our existing openings are not suited to meet your child's needs, the Admissions Team will offer a list of possible options for the family moving forward.
What happens if my child needs support with school readiness skills?
Sometimes, families are advised to begin “Family Consultant” work before the child is admitted to support the family and student with the transition to TJSH.
Does the admissions process come with a fee?
There is no cost to apply or proceed through the admissions process.
Is financial aid available?
Need-based scholarships help TJSH reflects a wide community. If you are interested in a scholarship, please ask about the application during the application process.
Thank you for considering The Journey School of Houston for your child.
