Clearway School

Clearway’s Admissions Process

Although Clearway currently is filled for the 2022-23 school year. Clearway accepts applications for students in grades 7-12, and we maintain a waiting list. There are possibilities for mid-year transition to Clearway's program.

Clearway School admits students entering grades 7-12 with language-based learning disabilities, nonverbal learning disabilities, dyslexia, and other similar special needs. The admissions process begins with a referral being emailed to Peter Rosen (Clearway's Educational Administrator) at or mailed to Clearway School. When a student is referred to Clearway School by the public school, the Educational Administrator, Peter Rosen, reviews all available information to determine if the applicant is appropriate for further consideration.

If the applicant seems appropriate, the parent(s)/guardian(s) is invited to visit the school and observe the program. Public school personnel may be invited as well. If after the parent(s)/guardians(s) visit, it appears that there is potential for an appropriate match, the student is invited for a short interview and tour.

Before making a final recommendation, the student is invited to participate in an entire day of classes. The visiting day offers the student the opportunity to experience a typical day at Clearway School and allows our staff to get to know the student in a classroom environment. Students are assisted by a Student Ambassador (who helps visitors navigate the visit) during the visit. The admissions process also includes a short intake application and a release so that Clearway staff can speak with professional(s)/individual(s) that can speak to a student's needs.

Clearway School has a policy of rolling admissions and students can be enrolled at any time during the school year.

Our admissions process is adapting for the current health crisis, and some families can choose to have some steps occur virtually. If there is an in-person visit, all individuals are required to comply with Clearway's mask policies, which currently include masks worn inside the building.

Peter Rosen can be reached at or (617) 964-6186.
