Admissions

Crossroads School specializes in serving children and young adults between the ages of 3 and 22 with autism spectrum disorders and related diagnoses.

Interested parents, guardians and school districts may request an informational tour of our facilities that includes a description of Crossroads’ philosophy, treatment approach and educational services.

The actual admissions process consists of three steps.

  • Referral: 
Crossroads accepts applications for admission when accompanied by a referral packet from a school district or other public entity. Referral packets are reviewed promptly to determine if the applicant is potentially appropriate for our program.
  • Intake Screening: 
After reviewing the Referral Packet, an appointment is made for an intake screening if it’s determined that the child may be a potential candidate. During the intake, the child is evaluated in-person to assess skills and competencies. At the time of intake determination is made if an opening exists in a classroom that matches the applicant’s age, cognitive level and other clinical factors. Intake screenings are scheduled for one hour and take place at Crossroads while parents meet with a member of the Admissions Department.
  • Determination: 
After reviewing all the information collected during the initial referral and intake screening, Crossroads Admission Team makes a determination regarding acceptance. Student admission is based on available placement into the child’s most appropriate peer grouping within the school. If the student is appropriate but an opening is not available, the student will be placed in our referral file pending an appropriate opening.

“Thank you for allowing me to come tour Crossroads. You made us feel very at ease and comfortable and I walked away feeling this was a place that would enrich and benefit my child and family. For me it envisioned the hallmark picture of what a program should look like for my daughter. We are very excited to start this new journey.” S.K.
