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:
- Student is classified by district Child Study Team (CST)
- District and parents release reports to Holmstead
- Director and clinical staff review referral
- 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).
