Admissions Process

Finding the best educational setting for your child who learns differently can be stressful and frustrating. The DVFriends team of administrators and faculty are here to help.
Ways to Connect with Us
Phone meetings -- Please complete our inquiry form to schedule a call with Mary Ellen or Kavitha, or call directly at 610-640-4150 (Ext. 2100 -- Mary Ellen; Ext. 2120 -- Kavitha). We'd love to start a conversation with you about whether DVFriends is a fit for your child.
Admissions Events -- We understand you may want to get to know more about us and our nationally respected and accredited curriculum. Please join us for an on-campus tour, Information Session, or Fast-Track Admissions Event. We ask that you register here and select the event you wish to attend or contact the Admissions Office to schedule a private tour.
Next Steps
Online Application -- Please view our online application 
Application Requirements -- We understand that the pandemic may have created backlogs with providers and other schools preventing you from providing us with all the required documents. We will work through this with you.
Admissions Committee -- Our Admissions Committee reviews applications as soon as most of our required documentation has been submitted.
On-Campus Visit -- Mission-appropriate students will be invited to visit our campus to meet with administrators, faculty, and current DVFriends students.
Parent Interview -- Parent interviews will follow student visits.
As always, if your family requires tuition assistance we ask that you complete the Financial Aid application simultaneously with your child’s admission application.
DVFriends conducts rolling admissions. We are still accepting applications in all grades for the 2021-22 school year.
We look forward to working with your family and learning more about your child.
