How to Apply

How to Apply

The admissions process is designed to give families the opportunity to determine if Open Window may be a good fit for your child and your family. If you have any questions along the way, please don't hesitate to reach out to the admissions office. We begin accepting applications on October 1, 2020. 

List of 8 items.

  • Find out More

    Schedule time to learn more about our school. Create an account through Ravenna, and choose Open Window School to "explore". This will allow you to register for a virtual parent information session that works for your schedule. If you have applied and/or toured previously, you are welcome to attend a virtual information session, but it is not a requirement.
  • Schedule your child's IQ exam

    Schedule your child’s IQ examination with a licensed psychologist. You can submit the IQ results directly to Open Window via postal mail or email, or you can request that the psychologist send it to us. Test results are valid for two years.

    We suggest scheduling this as soon as possible, as many examiners have reduced capacity due to the extra time needed for socially distanced tests and cleaning protocols. While our preference is for in-person testing, we will accept virtual administrations. 
  • Application and fee

    Access your Ravenna account to submit your child's application and application fee ($65).

    Please contact if the application fee is a financial hardship for your family. 
  • Complete your parent questionnaire

    Complete your parent questionnaire on Ravenna.
  • Parent/Guardian Interview

    We value the opportunity to get to know your child and your family better, and encourage you to think of this as more a conversation than an interview. While we will have some questions for you, we also hope to use this time to answer any questions that you have about our program and our community. 

    Translators are available upon request. Contact the Admissions Office to arrange. 
  • Teacher evaluation

    Delegate your child’s current teacher to fill out a teacher evaluation through Ravenna. We suggest completing this step as soon as possible to allow your child’s teacher plenty of time to complete the evaluation.
  • Applicant visit

    Applicants visits to Open Window are our chance to get to know your child and for him/her to experience a typical school day at Open Window School. Due to COVID restrictions, we will be hosting virtual visits for applicants to Open Window during the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Print, sign and request records

    Print and sign a records request form through Ravenna and turn into your child’s current school. We ask for a report card from the current school year, as well as records from the previous two years. Open Window requires standardized achievement test results (ITBS, ERB, MSP, etc). If your child has not had standardized achievement testing administered through his/her current school, please contact the Admissions Office.
