John Cardinal O’Connor School Admissions Cycle

Students are accepted on a three-step rolling admissions cycle based on a prospective student’s IEP/IESP and available space in the classroom.

Step One: A panel reviews student’s paperwork (IEP/IESP/Evaluations).

Step Two: If a potentially appropriate placement, student spends day at JCOS.

Step Three: If accepted, parents must set up:

  • Coordination of bus transportation (deadline of April 1st); and
  • Request for services (PT, OT, ST, Counseling) (deadline of June 1st)

Important Dates: April 1st & June 1st
