Thank you for your interest in the League School of Greater Boston. The League School’s rolling admissions’ process allows us to receive referrals and enroll students at any time of the year. Students must be between the ages of 3 – 21 and have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in order to be considered for admissions. We have a broad spectrum of students that we serve. League School is one of the first schools in the United States devoted exclusively to students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
We recognize that choosing the right placement for your child can be an overwhelming and stressful process. We are here to help you through the process and hope that the steps we have outlined will answer your questions and make the process less stressful for you and your child. Please feel free to reach out to our Admissions Coordinator at any time during the process.
Below is a brief outline of the League School admissions process:
- Step 1: Referral Packet is received by the League School. Referral packets typically contain the student’s IEP, any recent testing, psychological reports, behavioral data, and any other information that will be helpful in informing the League School’s decision.
- Step 2: Observation of student at current placement and tour of League School. Frequently, League School staff will observe a potential student in his/her current placement, this can be scheduled concurrently with a tour of League School by the student’s parent/guardian.
- Step 3: Initial Intake Meeting. Parents/Guardians and potential student come to League School for a visit. While parents meet with admissions representatives, Program Coordinator, and Clinician, the potential student has an opportunity to meet team members around the school.
- Step 4: Complete all requested paperwork. Required Admissions Application and Releases can be found here. All of these forms must be completed prior to a student’s admission to League School.
- Step 5: Full-Day Intake. The potential student will spend a full day at League School participating in the program he/she is most likely to attend, if admitted. In the case of a residential referral, the potential student will also spend an overnight at one of the residences on the school’s campus. On occasion, a student may be asked to return for a second full-day or overnight intake in the event that a different classroom or residence is to be considered.
- Step 6: Determination. Once the admission process is complete, a recommendation to accept or decline a candidate for admission to League School is reviewed by the Admissions Committee. The decision of the Admissions Committee is discussed with the funding school district or other referral source.
- Step 7: Program Admission. If a student is determined eligible for admission, an admission date is scheduled with the school district or other referral source and with the parent/guardian.
