Admissions Process & Fees

Phase 1 includes the first three steps of the admissions process. A $300 non-refundable deposit for phase 1 is to be paid after attending an information session, once parent and student visits are scheduled. 

The first step is to fill out the information form and attend an information session.  At the information session, you will have an opportunity to sign up for your parent and student enrollment visits.

Step 1 - Information Form and Information Session 

Step 2 - Parent and Student Visit 

The prospective students visits with the Clinical Coordinator for an informal assessment.  While the Clinical Coordinator meets with the student, parents have an opportunity to share more information about their child with a member of the Enrollment Team.

 

The $300 non-refundable deposit for these meetings is rolled into the application fee should the parent choose to apply. 

Step 3 - Parent and Student Visit 

Parents meet with the Clinical Coordinator to learn more about the family support the school offers. While the Clinical Coordinator meets with the parent(s), the prospective student meets with the Education Director. During this visit, the prospective student can learn about The Journey School from one of our Student Ambassadors as they do an activity to do together.  

Phase 2 includes the last three steps of the admissions process. The remainder of the $1,000 application fee for phase 2 is to be paid once a parent fills out the application and schedules the shadow day. 

Step 4 - Application and Meet the Teacher

Before scheduling a shadow day, parents are asked to submit the application via Simple Practice.  

Once the application is filled out, parents and the prospective student are invited to meet the teachers after school and explore the classroom.

Step 5 - Shadow day

Classroom visits provide prospective students with an opportunity to experience our unique classroom setting.  The first shadow day is either scheduled as a half-day or full-day.  The school provides all materials and supplies needed on the shadow day, with the exception snacks/lunch and a reusable water bottle.  If an additional shadow day is required, we will schedule that with the parents.  

Step 6 - Enrollment Decision

After the assessment visits, shadow day, and application file review, If we determine that an existing opening would be a good match for your child's academic, social, and emotional needs, the school sends out an enrollment package to be considered by the parent(s). 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.

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.
