The Next Steps

Enrollment Process

Enrollment Schedule

Students are invited to enroll on weekdays between 9:00 am and 3:30 pm year-round. Students enter an existing group of students and stay for an average of 10-12 weeks.

Enrollment Procedure

In keeping with our commitment to transparency and family participation, parents or guardians are present for their child’s enrollment. Parents and students meet with a therapist and other program staff in our comfortable Waitsfield office. Young adult clients may choose to travel independently and will be met at the airport by True North staff and transported directly to our office for enrollment.

Transportation

East Coast and New England area families may travel by car to True North and our offices are an easy 50-minute drive from Burlington International Airport (BTV). Private airstrips in nearby Berlin and Burlington, Vermont provide additional convenience.

Assisted Enrollment

While the majority of True North students enroll with their parents, about 15% of students are able to accept and commit to their participation at True North better with the assistance of professionals outside of the family. Our admissions team works closely with families, consultants, and professionals to help plan this type of enrollment.

Educational Consultants

We recommend that our families work with an educational consultant. Educational Consultants have a vast knowledge and in-depth experience with resources all over the country. Their support is invaluable in helping to facilitate the right placement for our students or assist with their transition home. If you are not working with an educational consultant or would like to learn more about them, please contact us for more information.
