A Notice About Chelsea School Admissions

Greetings Friends and Neighbors,

We sincerely hope that you are all healthy and safe during this challenging time.

For anyone interested in enrollment, the Chelsea School Admissions team will continue to review applications and referrals that come in via parents, advocates, law offices, and our local educational systems.  Appropriate documentation is still required, but we are waiving all application fees until further notice.  

Chelsea will continue to fulfill its mission of serving students with learning disabilities while encouraging their health and safety through distance learning.  The administrative team is working hard to offer a rigorous curriculum, utilizing a virtual classroom to provide direct instruction—our goal is structure and normalcy through academics.

Although we cannot offer tours at this time, we encourage you to contact us with any questions about our school or the admissions process.  Our Admissions Director is available for scheduled phone inquiries and through Zoom, a secure video conference portal. Please use this link to request and schedule a conversation.  When guidance from local health and government agencies allows, Chelsea will resume tours and open house events as usual.

Stay safe, and thank you for your interest in Chelsea School.

Thank you Hyattsville, what a terrific event!

A better reader each day


Even at a young age, Elijah felt that school was a challenge.  As a struggling reader in public school, his parents knew there were other options for special education, but also knew time was a factor—a waiting list wouldn’t do.  When touring Chelsea, he “…saw small class sizes, and teachers that were able to take the time to help students that needed help.”  Elijah was able to start right away as a 6th grader at Chelsea School.  Now in the 11th grade, “I can read harder books” he says.  “Most recently, The One and Only Ivan, [by Katherine Applegate] was my favorite.”

As a Chelsea Knight who embraces his learning difference, Elijah offers this: “Keep trying your hardest.  If you need help, tell your parents.  Parents: listen to your kids.  If your kid is dyslexic, they need a lot of help.  I was lucky enough to have that help; my parents got me into a great school, and I’m a better reader each day.”

You can help students like Elijah reach the right school.  Chelsea’s ability to provide financial aid means accessible special education in our community.  Watch for more Chelsea voices, visit https://www.chelseaschool.edu/support-chelsea/, and make a donation today!
