STEPS TO ADMISSION

What is the Admissions process at DHCA?

Step 4: Placement Testing and Family Interview

Upon receipt of the required documentation in the previous 3 steps, DHCA will contact your family to schedule an interview and placement testing date.  The testing helps us create the best possible program for your student.
