The best way to learn about TJSH is to take a tour and ask questions.
Parent tours are done regularly throughout the school year and are a required step in our admissions process. To sign up for the parent tour, please fill out the the information form.
Information form and Parent Meeting
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 set up a parent meeting. Parent tours are usually scheduled on Wednesday from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Student visit and Family Consultant Introduction
Your child visits with the Clinical Coordinator for an initial assessment. Parents will meet briefly after the assessment.
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. We allow the child to take the lead separating from parents before the parents are invited to leave the classroom to meet with the family consultant. Shadow days usually begin with a half day followed by a 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 therapeutic approach and share previous school and home experiences.
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 we need more information?
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.
