Procedure for Admission

Students who are in need of a therapeutic day school placement are recommended to us by their school districts.  Typically a student will be referred after he or she has completed an evaluation process within the school district.  In most cases students have experienced limited success, even with the addition of supplementary aides and services.  Therefore a more intensified degree of services is necessary for the student’s success.  Students who would benefit from a high degree of counseling, but are not in need of residential care, are usually appropriate for Metro Prep.

Before the student can achieve academic and therapeutic success at Metro Prep, they must express the desire to attend school on a regular basis.  In addition, it is strongly suggested that parents become willingly involved in our program.  This includes regular participation in annual reviews, staffings, open houses, parent groups, family therapy and other individually recommended activities.

Metro Prep admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to our students.  Metro Prep does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its education policies, admissions policies, athletic and other school administered programs or any scholarship or loan programs.
