    After reviewing the completed application, The Auburn School will contact you to schedule a student visit if we believe your child can be well served by our program. Additional information will be provided when the visit is scheduled. 

    • Parent interview (optional)

    In certain circumstances, we may request that the parents visit with Auburn staff to discuss the child’s application, testing and learning needs in more detail.
