Student Application


  1. The first step in our intake process is for a family to download and fill out the application. Please complete the application thoroughly and be sure to use the checklist on page 9 to confirm that you have completed all the steps. Your teen should fill out pages 7 and 8. Send the completed application and additional information by mail to:

    Admissions Coordinator
    c/o The Fold
    PO Box 1188, Lyndonville, VT 05851


  2. After receiving the application our Admissions Coordinator will contact you to setup an on-site interview.

  3. The family comes on-site for a day long interview process which includes touring our campuses and meeting with staff members to discern if The Fold is the right fit for your family. Before leaving the interview, Fold staff members will meet with the teen to let them know if they have been invited to participate in the program.

  4. If invited, the teen (and family) is given a few days to decide if they want to accept the invitation to participate in The Fold’s program. The teen is given a specific day to call our office with his or her decision. If the teen calls and says, "yes," an intake date is scheduled for the teen to start the program.
