Step 2: Submission of Completed Enrollment Application, Forms and Fees
Log on to the Admissions Portal to complete the application.
There is a non-refundable processing fee of $100 that must be submitted along with the application. In order to move forward with the admissions process, all necessary forms, documentation and fees must be received.
Recent testing (completed within the past two years) and other documentation must be uploaded through the Admissions Portal.
- Psycho-educational testing

Step 3: Review by the Admissions Committee
The Admissions Committee will review your application and all documentation materials provided. The Committee will determine whether placement is a possibility and parents will be notified of the status of the application.
Step 4: Informal Student Interview
If it is determined that placement is a possibility, the Admissions Office will contact parents to schedule a time for your child to come to school for a student interview. During the interview, the teachers will assess your child’s social, emotional and academic abilities. This process may take 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending upon the age of the child. We try to make this as relaxed as possible for each student. There is no pass or fail, just an informal evaluation to determine strengths and areas of need for each student. Your child will have the opportunity to take a tour of the school and meet some of the teachers and students.
Step 5: Parent Interview
After the student interview, the Admissions Office will contact parents to schedule a parent appointment. Based on staff assessment and current enrollment, your child may be offered the opportunity to enroll. If accepted and classes are full, your child will be placed in a wait pool and you will be notified when an opening becomes available.
Step 6: Enrollment Offer or Consultation
“Would we recommend The Tuttle School to parents with a special needs child? We would – emphatically, unequivocally, and with a wish and prayer that their child enjoys all the blessings that our Josie has enjoyed in Tuttle.”
