Do you know a child or adolescent struggling with managing behaviors at school, making friends, achieving academic standards, or communicating with others? The Merakey Schools welcomes student referrals from nearby school districts any time of year. In order to meet the needs of each student, Merakey embraces a rolling admission process and accepts students whenever a need is identified.

To enroll in one of the Merakey Schools, call the nearest school location and request information about the school or schedule a tour of the facility. Once you have toured and decided you are interested in enrolling your child, contact your local school district's Special Education Director to express interest in our school. Next, complete a referral form to start the process. If the school district's Special Education Director agrees with the placement, you will sign a Notification of Recommended Educational Placement (NOREP) form. You will also be required to complete an Merakey intake packet upon enrollment of your child. The school district will provide us with the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), Evaluation Report (ER)/Re-Evaluation Report (RR), and medical record, as well as a signed contract between the district and the Merakey School.
