Getting to know your child: Our admissions process

Our Admissions process is designed to help you make an informative and thoughtful decision about the next educational setting for your child. Our admissions program and decisions are conducted on a rolling basis as each application for admission becomes complete. After completing the first few steps, if we all feel that your student will benefit from our program, the application for admission is submitted.

The following steps are important as we get to know your child 

Submit Application:

Please submit a completed application, evaluative material, and a $50.00 application fee to us at The Craig School, 10 Tower Hill Road, Mountain Lakes, NJ 07046. All of our applications are submitted online using The Craig School website. Apply Online Application & Evaluative Material Review:  Students will be evaluated using a variety of educational tools. The testing can be uploaded to the portal once you have applied or please email the testing to nmoon@craigschool.org. We require as many of the following as available before making an evaluation:

  • Neuropsychological Evaluation and/or IEP if completed
  • Educational Assessment from your school district, (if available and completed by your school district).
  • Learning Evaluation from a private evaluator

Preliminary Screening:  We want to be able to serve students at Craig who will benefit from our programs. Our goal is to make sure we meet the needs of our students. 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. 

Admissions Decision:  The Admissions Committee makes a final determination after the above steps are completed. You will be notified of our Admissions decision by phone and mail. Enrollment Contracts are then generated for the school year. 

Please explore our website, learn about our staff and programs or take a virtual tour of The Craig School.

We are accepting applications on a rolling admission program, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have during your search process.
