The admission process starts with a careful assessment of your child.

Shrub Oak has the capacity to work with a wide variety of students, and to custom tailor their educational experiences. We welcome the opportunity to talk with prospective families to help determine if Shrub Oak is the right fit for you. 

Tour Our Campus

Prior to applying, parents are welcome to tour campus with a Shrub Oak Admissions Director who not only will give you a tour of campus, but will spend time with you, one-on-one, to get to know you and your unique child, and to answer any questions you may have.  

Once you decide to apply, we will guide you through the process which begins with our application for admission. This detailed online form allows our team to begin the evaluation process, and get to know your child. The $100.00 application fee includes an in-depth assessment by our clinical services team, and can be paid via our secure online payment gateway. Once the application form and your application fee have been received, a member of our admissions team will be in touch to schedule a meeting. We offer rolling admissions, and operate 365 days a year.

Student Profile

We recognize that some prospective students may present very differently in person than they do on paper, and that the right environment and approach will have a big impact on students’ behaviors and progress. 

That’s why, at Shrub Oak, we review prospective student applications on an individualized basis. 

Typical diagnoses, however, include Autism Spectrum Disorder; Nonverbal Learning Disability; Reactive Attachment Disorder; Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder; ADHD; Twice Exceptional; Dual Diagnoses of Autism and Co-Occurring Conditions including Visual and Hearing Impairments; and other related disorders.

International Students

Shrub Oak is approved by the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), and we are prepared and ready to accept international students. We believe strongly in the value of a culturally diverse environment, and welcome students from around the globe.
