Changing Your Child’s School Mid-Year?
Yorktown Education Welcomes You.
Rolling enrollment resolves any issues parents may have about changing their child’s school in the middle of the year.
Perhaps you’re considering other options for your child’s education or having to move due to a new job. Whatever the reason, transferring schools mid-year can be a worry. That is, unless you’re moving to the Dallas area and enrolling your child at Yorktown Education.
Yorktown Education has a Rolling Enrollment policy, which means you can enroll your child anytime during the year.
In the U.S., about 40 million people relocate each year, which means that many children have to transfer schools. At Yorktown Education, our goal is to make it as seamless as possible for you to get your child into their new school without missing any important milestones.
Since there are so many logistics to manage during a move, it’s important to do your homework on the new school. At Yorktown, we invite parents and students for a tour of the campus and a chat with the principal before making the move.
Your child can come for a day and sit in on classes to become more familiar with the surroundings, meet other students, and acclimate to the new environment.
Yorktown administrators will make sure you have all the necessary documents and walk through what’s needed such as transcripts, birth certificates, and immunization records. The Yorktown instructors are happy to help you determine what material your student needs to catch up in a particular subject before they begin mid-term.
We encourage parents to involve your child in the decision-making process of their new school, even though the final decision is up to you. It helps to learn what questions or concerns your child might have before making the change and getting those resolved. An open dialogue is always helpful.
Changing schools can offer a great opportunity for your child to experience new exciting challenges, make new friends, as well as learn how to adapt to new situations and build independence. Students who transfer to Yorktown Education discover positive differences they love immediately. For instance, as we get to know your child to discover what they love doing the most, we encourage and support them to work toward goals directed in that area of learning.
“Do What You Love” is the Yorktown Education mantra and we have hundreds of graduates who will tell you how it inspired their learning and their lives.
Your child will progress at their own pace at Yorktown — by ability, not by age or grade level. And advanced students may start college work as early as age 14. It’s not uncommon to see 5-year-olds learning Mandarin Chinese!
Instilling a love of learning is at the forefront of Yorktown Education. Our students look forward to coming to class each day with enthusiasm that keeps the classrooms alive with discovery.
A midyear school transfer can be successful, especially if you’re fortunate enough to enroll your child at Yorktown Education. Come see the Yorktown difference. Schedule a tour or call (972) 936-7988 to speak with someone directly.
