APPLICATION FOR PARENTS TO COMPLETE

TEACHER REFERRAL AND SURVEY

PLEASE NOTE:  If your child is accepted to the program and you take your child on vacation during July, you will not only disrupt the momentum and therefore, the effectiveness of the tutoring for your child, but you will jeopardize the tutor’s degree. Do not register for the program unless you have every intention of having your child participate throughout the month of July. Thank you for considering the needs of everyone involved. Also, if your child has participated in the program for more than two years, he/she will not be accepted for a third term. We would like to give every child the opportunity to experience the benefits that our program offers.

If your child is accepted into the program and you decide not to enroll, please notify the Graduate Education Program secretary immediately (845-398-4150) or you will not be permitted to apply in future years.
