As soon as the Enrollment Packet, along with all other documents are submitted to the enrollment office, the prospective student will be placed on a waiting list. At which time, we must adhere to state of Michigan requirements for open enrollment. Specific dates for open enrollment typically change from year to year. However, they normally open in January and August. We can accept applications at any time, but please be aware that we must wait for open enrollment dates before we can contact anyone.
Upon further review of your application, we will set up an initial home visit. During which, we come to the address provided on your application to discuss expectations of the program to the student and family, as well as answer any questions you may have for us. After the initial home visit is complete, we will contact the household again to schedule induction.
Induction is currently a 2-day process. The first day, students, or what we call researchers, will learn how to use an iMac workstation. During this time they will be introduced to programs and applications that will be beneficial to their school work including: iLife and iWork application suites, and our e-mailing system First Class. On the second day, researchers will be guided through their first project with a certified teacher or Lab Mentor. Afterward, they will be instructed to meet with their assigned Project Manager. Project managers oversee researcher progress, and ensure they are keeping on track with their school work. WCHS will not release any equipment until completion of both days.
