As is the case with other private schools, inquiries and applications are received throughout the year and applicants are accepted on a space-available basis, although most students enroll in May/June or September.
Please note that school tuition and fees may be tax-deductible as medical expenses. Children who have been diagnosed as having a specific learning disability may qualify for deductions under federal income tax regulations.
Please see the following links for Idaho Medical Saving and IRS guidelines and qualifications for special education for children with learning disabilities: http://www.idahomsa.com/ & https://www.irs.gov/publications/p502 AND check with your CPA to understand how this would affect your family’s tax return.
The admissions process involves the following steps:
- Parents or educational consultants initially should speak with Admissions. At that time, a preliminary evaluation will be made to determine whether W2LA is an appropriate school for the prospective candidate and informational materials will be sent from the Academy.
- The Student Application enclosed with the school’s materials should be completed and returned to the school along with current educational and psychological evaluations (the WISC is most commonly used), Student Evaluation Forms to be filled out by current teachers, school records including achievement test scores and teachers’ comments, and any other pertinent information. The application process can take several weeks so please apply as early as possible. It is important for us to receive and review all of the information listed above so that we can make sure that we are a good match for your child and your child is a good match for us.
- If it is determined that W2LA is a suitable match for the child, parents will be contacted to arrange an on-site interview and tour of the school.
- Families may apply for tuition assistance from the Wired2Learn Foundation when their child is accepted to the program. Any assistance awarded will be determined by the Scholarship Committee based on financial need, available funds, and other pertinent factors. Please ask for more information.
