How is acceptance and placement at the League School determined?
The League School Admissions Team reviews each student’s record, meets with the student and their parents/guardians, and determines whether or not League School is a good match for the student’s needs. Students typically come for a day visit or a day and overnight visit, if they are interested in the Residential Program. This gives the student a chance to experience what it is like to attend League School and it gives the Admissions Team an opportunity to observe how the student fits into the League School community. It is important that the student has the ability to make progress and have their needs met in a 4:1 student to staff ratio.
