At the May Center for Education and Neurorehabilitation in Brockton, Mass., our two main objectives during the admissions process are to share information about our school services with families and professionals, and to work to determine if a student will be an appropriate fit for our school. We realize that each student has a different learning style and unique skill set, and our priority is to help meet the individual needs of each student accepted to our program.
Step 1: The admissions process for a student begins with a referral to the school. A referral packet should be sent to our Program Director, Andrea Potoczny-Gray. Typically the referral source is the public school district or, in some cases, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS). If a student is not funded through the school district, a parent may submit a private pay referral for their child.
Once Andrea receives the referral packet, she will begin the review process with our school’s clinical and educational team.
Step 2: During the review process, the team may request additional materials or ask to speak with other parties who are knowledgable about the student. We will also contact the referral source and the family to schedule a visit to the school and a screening of the student.
Step 3: Andrea will provide a tour of the school and conduct the student’s screening in collaboration with other team members. If the family is seeking a residential placement, Andrea will also provide a tour of one our community-based residential homes.
Please note: A referral is not necessary to receive a tour of our program. We welcome anyone who is interested, school personnel and families alike, to schedule a visit at any time.
The final admissions decision is usually made within 1-5 business days following the screening. Andrea will inform the referral source and the family of our final admissions decision.
Step 4: Various documents must be submitted in order to complete the admissions process and enroll the student into the school. Some of these are the responsibility of the May Center and others are the responsibility of the family and/or referral source. Andrea will provide a list of the documents needed prior to the student’s admission date.
Please note: Admission dates are set on a case-by-case basis. We consider all requests from the family and school district when determining the start date for each student.
As a Massachusetts Chapter 766-approved provider of private day and residential schools, our tuition rates for students from the Commonwealth are set by the state’s Operation Services Division (OSD). The rates set by OSD vary for each private school and depend on the programs and services offered at the school.
