Admission Process

We are exclusively a private receiving school and do not accept private placements. Holmstead School serves an average population of 70 students, ages 11-18, grades 6-12, evenly divided between male and female, from 52 towns in 5 counties. We also offer an Extended School Year Program (ESY).

Our process is fairly straightforward. These are the steps:

  1. Student is classified by district Child Study Team (CST)
  2. District and parents release reports to Holmstead
  3. Director and clinical staff review referral
  4. If appropriate, an interview is arranged for parent(s)/guardian, student, and Child Study Team (CST) Case Manager. (all parties, including the student, attend the interview).
