Cambridge School is an extraordinary place where children with dyslexia, ADHD, and other language-based learning differences thrive. When the right match exists between the mission of our school and the needs of a child, that’s when Cambridge School can best serve a student.
Our admission process is designed to determine an applicant’s appropriateness for placement at Cambridge. Note, we are not able to offer placement to children with primary emotional/behavioral issues or autism.
Parent Tour and Class Visit
Call the Admission Office at 609-730-9553 or fill out our inquiry form to schedule a parent tour and class visit. These informational visits are offered Monday through Thursday mornings, and we recommend that both parents and/or guardians attend this meeting.
Application Forms and Fees
After the parent tour and class visit, please submit the following information to the Admission Office:
- Completed online admission application
- Supporting documents, including: reports from all recently administered educational and psychological testing; an achievement battery including reading, math, and written language assessments with updated norms; and school records including Individual Educational Plans (I.E.P.)
- $475 non-refundable fee. This includes administrative costs, reviewing reports/evaluations, performing interviews, and administering placement testing. Baseline testing includes a diagnostic assessment of reading, wide range achievement test, and Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test III (PPVTIII)
Screening and Placement
After reviewing a student’s application and supporting documents, the Admission Office will be in touch with parents to schedule a screening and placement test. The director of admission will meet with parents immediately after screening to discuss the results.
Shortly after that, an offer for placement will be extended to appropriate candidates in the form of an acceptance letter. We try our best to let families know during their initial contact if we feel Cambridge School is not the right placement; however, sometimes this is not apparent until later in the process. In these instances, families will be notified as soon as possible.

Providing your child with an excellent education is vital to his or her future, and this is especially true for children with learning differences. At Cambridge School, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity for an excellent education, regardless of socioeconomic status. Each year we provide needs-based financial aid to qualifying families to close the gap between what they can afford and the costs of a Cambridge education. We are now offering Early Intervention Scholarships for K – 2nd grade students. Be sure to ask about our financial aid assessment during the admission process.
