School Age Admissions Procedures
Our school-age program focuses on the relationship between language development and academic instruction. Language learning ability is the cornerstone of all areas of academic learning. Parents are invited to tour Tiegerman and observe our unique program, including our transdisciplinary curriculum. Our tours are held monthly, and you can find these dates under "Schools Tours and Admissions".
If you are interested in in attending one of our in-person tours, please visit tiegerman.org/tour to see our current schedule.
Candidates for admission will be considered after the following has been received:
- A completed application form
- Psychological, Neuropsychological, or Psychoeducational Evaluation
- K-2 evaluation within 1 year, 3rd and above evaluation within 2 years
- Speech/Language Evaluation

Upon receipt of the completed application, the packet will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Please note that our admissions procedure is time intensive.
