Entering Sudbury Valley
Valley has a policy of open admissions, accepting all applicants who
have the capacity for full participation in the school's program as self-directed,
autonomous members of the school's community. Applicants must be at least
four years old.
The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender,
or national or ethnic origin. An admissions interview gives applicants
and their families an opportunity to learn more about the school. Everyone
interested in pursuing enrollment must first spend a week at school as
a visiting student so that the school, the student, and the student's
family have a chance to decide about enrollment. Enrollment may take
place at any time during the school year, as long as there are openings
available, and is for a full year from the date of entry.
