Summer Enrollment

Dear Cotting families,
This year’s summer theme is life ready!  Life Ready is when individuals learn and engage in experiences that help prepare them for all aspects of life.  When an individual is life ready they possess the mindset that empowers them to approach the future with confidence, self-awareness, self-determination, self-management, social awareness, decision-making and relationships.

The summer term runs from July 6 – August 7, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Consistent attendance is an expectation for the program. School districts pay the full, five-week tuition rate for all students, regardless of attendance. Please be aware that we are required to report attendance data to all sending districts. Please notify your school district of your intention to attend Cotting’s summer program and your need for transportation.

Planning for the summer takes time! It is imperative that we receive your response by the deadline.  Once we have received them, we will begin to work on groupings and curriculum decisions. We will do our best to accommodate student preferences, but we cannot guarantee that all students will receive their first choice.  After the deadline, we will only be able to accommodate requests based on scheduling and availability.

Many of our regular faculty and staff will be with us during the summer term.  However, changes in enrollment and staffing do not allow us to guarantee that your child/teen/young adult will have the same service providers.  Support services will be provided as indicated in your child/teen/young adult’s IEP.

Below are links to descriptions of the programs available to current Capstone, Upper School, Middle School and Lower School families.  Please click on the link based on your child/teen/young adult’s current placement at Cotting.

You will receive an email with a link for an enrollment form.  Please complete and submit the form no later than March 20th, 2020.  If you prefer to fill the form out by hand, please let me know.

We look forward to an exciting and fun summer!  Feel free to contact me, anytime, with any questions or concerns.
