Benhaven Academy only accepts students who have been referred by school districts.

The admission process typically begins with an inquiry from school districts or parents. A formal referral from the district with submission of school records to the Student Service Facilitator is recommended to begin the process. The district and parents are required to fill out an application, which will be reviewed with all records to determine if the program is appropriate for the student.

Parents and districts are invited to interview with the director and tour the academy to observe the school program. If both parties choose to continue, the next step is an intake process. The student attends the school for approximately one week to see if it is an appropriate fit. Upon completion of the student’s visit, administrative and teaching staff meet to determine if the program is a good fit for the student. Enrollment date is based upon availability of an opening in the program and the commitment of the student’s family and school district.
