Determining if a student is eligible for admission, is a process that is completed by the Directors of the school through an informal and relaxed meeting with both the prospective student and the parent(s)/guardian. Materials indicating giftedness may be brought with the applicant to the visit or may be submitted later with the application. These materials may include test scores (achievement, aptitude or ability), historical records (report cards/grades) or samples of creative achievements. These materials greatly assist the Directors with this process, but are not mandatory to determine eligibility. Anderson School does not offer testing services to indicate if an applicant is gifted, talented, or creative. This kind of test goes against the educational principles which Anderson supports. If you have any questions regarding eligibility, please contact the school and we will be happy to assist you with any further questions: (817) 448-8484.
In addition to the meeting with the Directors of the school, Dr. David Welsh, a consulting child psychologist, meets with all applicants in another informal and relaxed meeting with both the prospective student and the parent(s)/guardians. You will schedule an appointment with his office for this visit. This meeting will assist both the applicant and the school in determining eligibility.
The procedure for admission is intended to acquaint prospective parents and students with the school and its philosophy. Furthermore, it is designed to give assurance that the goals parents have for their children are compatible with the mission and philosophy of the school and that the applicant is compatible with the staff and the students enrolled in the school. If you are interested in pursuing admission to the school, please follow this procedure:
The non-refundable application fee is $165.00 and is payable to Dr. David J. Welsh at the time of the student/parent interview. This one time fee is for new students only and covers all costs associated with applying for admission, including an interview with Dr. David J. Welsh, consulting child psychologist.
