If there is concern or need for a faster enrollment process, contact us and we will do our best to work with the situation.
The Enrollment Process
White River Academy has rolling admissions so the troubled boy can be admitted to the residential treatment center any time of the year. The program involves a blend of academic and therapeutic programming to facilitate the student’s personal growth.
Step 1: For the first step to the enrollment process, it is best to call the admissions team at 866-300-0616, where a live person is available 24/7. An admissions counselor will provide the initial assessment to ensure that White River Academy is a good fit for the situation and prequalify the teen for enrollment.
Step 2: After speaking to a member of the admissions team, the next step is to fill out the enrollment agreement form on the parent portal. Parents or guardians will be asked to create a user name and password for this step. This portal is where parents or guardians can access information about their son during his stay at White River Academy. It is recommended to create easy-to-remember login information and avoid being locked out of the portal.
The enrollment application form requires information including:
- The son’s contact information
- Birth date
- Academic history
- Son’s behavior, personality and other aspects of background
- Son’s medical history with contact information for his current doctor and dentist
- The name, contact information, social security number, birthdate and insurance information of the parents and/or legal guardians, as well as sponsors (those helping financially)
Any and all information on the son will be relevant to help assess the situation. In order to develop an effective treatment plan for him, all areas of concern need to be brought up in the enrolment application. Having the medical history of the son along with current contact information for the son’s doctor, will help in the case of an emergency.
This step in the process can take some time, so the system is designed to save any information added to the application. This way, if the parents or guardians are unable to complete the enrollment application in one sitting, they can return to it at a later time.
Preparing to enter White River Academy
Step 3: Once the enrollment application is completed, the next step is for parents or guardians to review the information available on the portal. This information includes the list of items the son needs to bring with him in the parent information packet. It is essential to review the list of what their son needs and what he is not allowed to bring. To give a preview, any electronics and jewelry need to be left at home. Once the application has been reviewed and approved, a member of the admissions team will reach out to the parents or guardians.
Step 4: The final step is for parents to finalize the paperwork and prepare for their son’s entrance into White River Academy. There will be several important legal documents and contracts, which need to be signed and submitted before their son begins his program. Parents can complete this by submitting the form beforehand or bring with them upon dropping their son off at the academy. Two of these forms, the power of attorney and the contract for services, must be notarized.
Since this is a large change, not only for the son but the family as well, we are happy to answer any questions.
