Why Shelton?

Find out from our students and parents!


Shelton's mission is to serve and empower the lives of students who learn differently. Seeking the right school for a struggling child can be an overwhelming process. Our admission staff gives each family individualized attention to ensure that, if accepted, Shelton will be an appropriate setting for your student.

Learn About the
Admission Process

Shelton uses a rolling admissions process where new students from Early Childhood (3 years old) through grade 10 are accepted as student placements become available. Due to our highly specialized program and unique admission process, it is our policy to review any previous testing as one of the first steps in the admission process. This allows us to become familiar with a child's strengths and weaknesses while also determining if a candidate would be served established academic groupings. If deemed an appropriate candidate, a tour is scheduled. 

Please note: Due to the high volume of applicants, tours are booked several weeks in advance.
