Our Review Process

Application reviews begin in mid-September for the following school year, after our first Group Tour, to determine the appropriateness of the placement. Interviews will be scheduled as we receive applications.


Parents and students are interviewed together and individually.


Students may be invited to participate in an ongoing class or a group interview before final decisions are made.


Tuition for the 2021-2022 school year is $26,000, not including summer. Summer program is $2,600 for 4 weeks.

A $5,000.00 non-refundable deposit will be due in the spring on a date determined after your child has been accepted.

If your student is placed at The Springstone School through the IEP process, then The Springstone School will enter into contract with your school district to arrange payment through them.
