We require a full psycho-educational evaluation, completed within the past 24 months. Jemicy School does not offer this type of testing. A qualified psychologist or educational evaluator must administer the evaluation. We will provide a list of evaluators to families upon request. The battery of tests must include the Wechsler Intelligence Scale (WISC V, WIPPSI, or WAIS) as well as a series of educational achievement tests. There is no “standard list” of educational tests to be administered, but testing may include selections from the Comprehensive Test of Phonological Processing (CTOPP), Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement, Woodcock Johnson Test of Achievement, Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, Oral Written Language Scales (OWLS), the Beery Developmental Test of Visual Motor Integration (VMI), and the Gray Oral Reading Test (GORT). Please consult with your educational psychologist to determine which battery of tests is most appropriate for your child.
We Require:
  • Parent tour and individual meeting, or attendance at a Parent Information Session
  • Student application with $50 application fee
  • Current psycho-educational evaluation (completed within 24 months of application)
