Experience the Joy of learning

The Joule School  

Welcome to The Joule School (R)

 

The admissions process

The admissions process begins with an initial phone screening, where the School will learn more about your child's individual learning style and academic needs.  This call is also an opportunity for parents to ask questions about the program and curriculum.  The interview typically takes about 30 minutes, with 15 minutes each reserved for the School and parent to ask questions of each other.   You do not need to prepare for the interview, but it is often helpful to have some recent homework or graded tests available to discuss.  Our goal is to learn what your child has already mastered, and any areas where they may need extra help.     


Students who qualify for Joule, based on the initial phone screening, will then be invited to a shadow day and tour at the School (parents are welcome to join, and observe their child in class!)

    

Admissions decisions are made after the phone screening and shadow day have been completed.  To schedule your initial interview, click the orange button at the bottom of any page on this website.  

 

We do not schedule individual school tours before the phone screening has been completed.  Private tours are by invitation only.  Joule holds a public Open House for prospective parents on the first Wednesday in August, October, and February from 9 to 10 a.m.  Advance Registration is not required for an Open House, but you must sign in with a photo ID before attending the tour.  Attendance at an Open House is not necessary to apply to the school.
