After a review of the application and evaluative materials submitted, we will be in contact with you to schedule further discussions about your student.

Parent Visit and meeting:  Our parent visit is designed so that you can speak directly with our school directors about your student. After this discussion, and it is determined that The Craig School could be a good match, your student will then be asked to spend a day with us. We will be following all state guidelines on COVID 19 so this full-day visit may be adjusted.

Student Visit: We will set up the visit on a mutually convenient day. You will receive an invitation via email for your student to visit on a specific day and included will be an overview of the day. Visiting a new school can be unpredictable so we will give you instructions on how to prepare everyone for the visit.  Your student will be given a brief reading assessment during this visit. This helps us to determine the best placement/reading class for your student.
