After we receive the completed admission form, schools & services form, psychological testing, (IQ and academic scores)* which must be no more than two years old for academic and three years old for IQ, we will be able to move forward with your child’s application.
Once accepted, parents commit to bringing their child to the center twice each week for about a fifty-five minute lesson. The 32° Masons financially support the center; however, we do request that parents become involved to help support the center in ways that they are able.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for your interest.
