Greenwood School is at capacity for the 2023-2024 school year.  Now accepting applications for our waitlist. Tours will resume in August 2023.

We understand that some of these items, like grades, etc. do not define your student. We use these as a starting point to understand the unique needs specific to your student. The whole process typically takes approximately one week.

STEP 1:  Once all items have been received, the Admissions team will meet to review all information.
STEP 2:  Upon review, and the decision to continue the process, we will contact you to schedule a student visit ("shadow day"), which will be followed by an interview with the parent(s)/guardian(s).
STEP 3:  During the shadow day, your student will be paired with a current student in their grade; they will attend classes and are encouraged to participate as much as they are comfortable doing so.
STEP 4:  Faculty members will complete a simple observation/evaluation of the visiting student at the end of the shadow day.
STEP 5:  Their observations of the student's strengths and needs, to answer any questions the family may have about becoming a Greenwood student, and to provide a more robust understanding of the prospective student. Again, we believe your student is more than just details on paper!
STEP 6:  Usually, the School is able to make the decision to offer a contract for enrollment by the end of the interview.
STEP 7:  Finally, if an Enrollment Contract is offered, you will be provided with appropriate enrollment paperwork and financial documents to complete the process of becoming a Greenwood School Family!

Application Process

If requested, Greenwood Schools will provide information electronically to parents. Our Admissions Director will follow up to see if there are additional questions and schedule a tour. Upon completion of the tour we will provide an application for you to complete, and we will request the following documentation for evaluation:

  • psycho-educational evaluations (if available)
  • current report card (we understand grades don’t define the student)
  • current IEP or 504 Plan (if applicable)

Tuition and Financial Assistance

Although Greenwood School is the best fit for many students’ unique learning needs, we also understand that finances may be a concern for families. Many of our families receive financial assistance from multiple sources:

  • Greenwood School accepts funding through state scholarship programs such as the McKay Scholarship, Gardiner Scholarship, Hope Scholarship, Florida Tax Credit Scholarship and Family Empowerment Scholarship for eligible students. Please follow the links to view these program requirements, or call us for more information.
  • Greenwood School partners with multiple private foundations who offer financial assistance to families for students with specific learning differences.
  • Greenwood also offers financial assistance through the School based on a family’s need. You may request Greenwood Scholarship information and an application during the admissions process, or each year with your contract renewal.

For more information about financial assistance please contact us by email or call us directly at (904) 726-5000.
