The Admissions Process

Inquiry – The first step of the admissions process is to contact the Admissions Coordinator at 714.244.4600, or to submit an online inquiry form.


Attend a School Tour – The Prentice School hosts monthly school tours. If you are unable to attend a pre scheduled tour, please contact the Admissions Coordinator to schedule a private tour. Click here to view our upcoming tour dates.


Collection and Review of Documentation – The Prentice School requires that certain documentation be submitted for the Admissions Committee to review. Documentation will not be reviewed until all of the following items have been submitted:

  • Psycho-educational testing report with an IQ score, completed within the last 3 years. (If you do not have this information available, The Prentice School is able to conduct a comprehensive assessment of your child. Please contact The Admissions Department for pricing.)
  • IEP/504 Plan (if applicable)
  • Most recent report card
  • Sample of student writing
  • Completion of online application form with $100 processing fee

Visitation – If the Admissions Committee agrees that the applicant may be an appropriate fit for Prentice, the applicant will be invited for a three-day visit of the school.


End-of-Visit Meeting – The family meets with the Director of Admissions to discuss the visitation. If appropriate, enrollment is offered at this time.
