Determining What Is Best For Your Child
Our admission procedures are designed to determine whether Pilot's approach to learning will be the most beneficial educational option for the applicant. The process begins with an initial inquiry, and we encourage all interested families to attend an open house. Once families are ready to apply, we ask for any educational or psychological evaluations that help to paint a fuller picture of the child as a learner. Sometimes, a speech, language, or occupational therapy evaluation may also be requested. From this information, the child's strengths, struggles, and associated learning differences are identified. Applicant families meet with the Head of School, and a visit day is scheduled so that applicants may experience a full Pilot School day.
Once a child is accepted to Pilot School, his or her individual program design is based on information collected during the admission process, along with results from additional diagnostic testing completed by Pilot. If a child is not accepted, the information helps point the way toward better options. Students are admitted regardless of race, religion, sex, or nationality.
