Referral Process

Our students come from the five boroughs of New York City. They are referred from the school or local Committee on Special Education (CSE) to the New York City Department of Education’s Central Based Support Team. This centralized office refers students to The New LIFE School. We also accept students who have obtained a Nickerson/P1 Letter, enabling them to gain access to any state-approved non-public school.

The New LIFE School accepts students aged 8-21 years, in grades 3-12. The Director of Admissions will contact the family and invite them for a tour of the building. They will work as a team to determine whether The New LIFE School is an appropriate setting for the student. The Director of Admissions will guide the family through the process and remain involved after admission to ensure a smooth transition with the regular school contact.
