'we use a best-practice, whole-child approach that opens the door to education and a more fulfilling life'

Lutheran Family Services of Virginia > Minnick Schools > Application Process

Application process

Students are referred by the child’s IEP Committee for a private special education day placement. With the consent of the parents or legal guardians, a staff member from the child’s home school division will set up a time for the family and child to tour Minnick. A school division representative completes the Minnick Application for Enrollment, and the FAPT team receives documentation that Minnick is the location of enrollment. The FAPT team is responsible for funding the placement through Comprehensive Service Act funds. Families do not incur cost for the placement.

Minnick Schools do not accept private pay and will not take referrals for enrollment directly from parents. All referrals must be submitted in conjunction with a staff member from the home school division.

Decisions regarding enrollment are made following the family visit to the school and review of the application packet. If the student is enrolled, it is the responsibility of the sending school district to complete all remaining paperwork relevant to the student’s enrollment.

Requests for information may be made by calling the Minnick School that serves your location between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Born of faith,
open to all.
