Manhattan's Only Therapeutic College Prep Independent School

Admissions Process

Our approach to therapeutic education is distinguished by services we deliver with personalized attention in a mindful, structured environment; our admissions process is also personalized and structured.

Admission to Stevenson is a simple, three-step process.

The first step is to request an application by email at Our office will happily reply with a letter of introduction and an application.

Step two is to complete and send in the application and accompanying documentation. We ask that you do this before visiting and touring our school. ​Your paperwork empowers our admissions and clinical teams to speak knowledgeably about the particulars of your child and your family. Our mission is to help you make the best choice of placement when considering Stevenson.

Tours are the final step. They are offered on a family-by-family basis, and students may be invited to visit and interview shortly after parents have visited our campus.

Students are considered for admission at any time during the school year.
