Approved Private Schools for Students with Disabilities (Out of State)
The following is a list of Out-of-State Private Schools that have met the requirements for approval to serve New Jersey students with disabilities. This means the private school has been approved by the education authority in the state where the school is located (home state). Also, if the private school is a residential school, it has been approved by the residential licensing authority of the home state or by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families. In addition, during the previous school year, the approved private school was able to demonstrate a need by serving a specific student or students with disabilities from New Jersey whose particular circumstances required the services of that school.
If you are seeking placement for a student with a disability in a particular out-of-state private school that is not listed below, the out-of-state private school must complete an application for approval and verify that a New Jersey school district is seeking placement of a student with disabilities. Upon receipt by the Office of Special Education Programs, the application review will be expedited to ensure a prompt response. To request an application, the out-of-state private school must contact the Office of Special Education Programs via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
