Dean of Admission, Assessment & Community Outreach
Student applicants should possess a current diagnosis of Specified Learning Disability and/or ADHD (Inattentive, Hyperactive-Impulsive, or Combined).
A current and complete psychological, psycho-educational, or neurological evaluation must be provided, along with recommendations from at least two teachers.
A student's verbal and cognitive abilities should fall in the average to above average range. At Fletcher, we do not specialize in serving low-verbal students or those identified with an intellectual disability.
A child's developmental history and professional recommendations must emphasize academic need - not emotional or behavioral need. TFA does not provide therapeutic services, nor do we specialize in behavioral challenges.
We invite you to visit both our Upper School campus in north Raleigh and Lower School campus in midtown Raleigh. Prior to your arrival, however, please be sure to schedule an appointment with the Dean of Admission, as we unfortunately cannot accommodate impromptu walk-in tours. Directions to both schools may be found here.
