Applying to The Edison School involves three steps:
Call the school to schedule a visit. Our Head of School will meet with parent(s)/caretaker(s) and the potential student.
When you arrive for your visit you will be provided with an application and other enrollment information, or you have the option to print it out ahead of time. Please bring available academic testing, Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), 504 plan and any specialists reports such as Speech & Language or a therapist’s evaluation for your child. We will tour the building at this time.
Once our staff has reviewed your information, you will receive a call to schedule a student visit, or “shadow visit.” Most student visits involve two full school days on premises to allow time for thorough observation.
After the student visit, the admission committee will review your child’s file to determine whether enrollment in The Edison School is appropriate. Student acceptance into the program is conducted on a rolling admission basis.

The Edison School seeks to attract a diverse and talented student body. To achieve that end, The Edison School is committed to providing financial assistance to qualified students whose families cannot afford the school’s full charges.
We recognize that the cost of private education requires a significant commitment for families. That’s why The Edison School strives to assist as many families as possible who cannot afford the school’s full tuition but are determined to stretch their own financial resources to make education their top priority.
If you are interested in applying for financial aid to assist, please wait to do so until your child’s academic application has been reviewed and accepted.
Once your child is accepted to be a potential student at The Edison School and if you believe that you will need Financial Assistance, contact the Head of School for information regarding the application process.
