OUR ADMISSIONS PROCESS
Begin Your Journey
In order to initiate the residential referral/admissions process, a youth must be formally referred by a recognized funding agency of the referring state (a few examples DCYF/DCF, DJJS, DMH, sending school districts, etc.). For more information on how to get involved with these agencies, contact your state’s DHHS Office or your local school district.
Once a formal referral has been made by an appropriate referring agency, our admissions team works to gather information pertaining to student’s needs and relevant history. While we do not have a formal referral or application form, we ask that identified referring entities provide as much referral documentation as possible for acceptance consideration. Referral documentation may include previous assessments/evaluations, DCYF or DJJS case history, behavioral reports, medical records, court documents, discharge summaries, IEP/school records, etc. Mount Prospect Academy’s admissions team then determines if one of our programs would be an appropriate fit for the referred student.
Our primary goal is providing a safe, supportive, structured environment for the children placed in our care.
Mount Prospect Academy offers same day or 24 hour admissions to any youth and family. Please contact Camille or Jeff for more information.
