Miriam School accepts applications and admits qualified students on a rolling basis throughout the school year.
If you think our school might be a good fit for your child, please contact our Admissions Director
via email or phone at 314.968.5225. We will be happy to discuss your child’s needs and learning styles, and whether our program would be a good match for your child’s needs.
- Schedule a Tour
A telephone interview with our Admissions Director establishes for both the parent and school that the child’s needs are compatible with the school’s mission. Parents then schedule a tour to see our classrooms in person and receive detailed knowledge about our program. After the tour an application packet is reviewed with parents who wish to apply. Applications may be made at any time; however, due to limited enrollment, applying early is advised.
- Submit an Application
Applications will be considered once they are complete with the following information:
- Completed Miriam School Application
- Signed intake release form
- Current educational, psychological and/or neurological evaluations that include intelligence, achievement and emotional/behavioral assessment
- Most recent academic report card
- $65 non-refundable application fee
- A current photo of your child
- The Student Visit
Upon receipt of the above information, the Admissions Director and other administrators will review the submitted materials. After the admissions committee reviews the application and determines that Miriam School might be an option for the potential student, that student will be invited to visit the school for a full day in a typical classroom. The visit includes participation in class activities, lunch, recess, and informal observation by our staff. This time allows the student to experience our school environment and allows our admission team and faculty to observe your child’s learning style.
- Committee Review
Acceptance to Miriam School is on a rolling basis. After a prospective student has visited the school, teachers and administrators will determine whether the school would meet the applicant’s needs. If the school has space and it is determined that our program could a student’s needs, an offer for acceptance will be made by the Admissions Director. Should classes be full, the child will be placed on a waiting list for the next available space.Miriam School’s specialized methods of instruction serve students whose diagnoses fall within the mission of the school very well. All applicants are assessed individually by gathering feedback from many perspectives and reviewing diagnostic information. Although families feel that Miriam School may be the best place for the student, the student’s profile may not be the best fit for Miriam School. If our program is not an appropriate placement for your child, you will be notified by the Admissions Director. Whenever possible we will try to make suggestions regarding other school options that might be pursued.
- Tuition Assistance Process
Admission decisions are made independent of financial need. Tuition assistance is available for families who demonstrate need. A new student must be accepted before he or she will be considered for financial aid. Please visit the Tuition & Financial Assistance page for more information.
