Interview & Intake Process
- The first step in the application process is for a family to fill out the application. Download Application Please complete the application thoroughly and be sure to use the checklist on page 10 to confirm that you have completed all the steps. Also note that questions 15B and 18 are for your teen to fill out. Send the completed application and additional information by mail to the Admissions Coordinator c/o The Fold, PO Box 1188, Lyndonville, VT 05851.
- After receiving the application and confirming that The Fold would be an appropriate placement for the teen, the Admissions Coordinator will give you a call to either schedule an on-site interview or request missing information. This step takes about five business days.
- The family comes on-site for a day long interview process which includes touring our campuses and meeting with staff members to discern if The Fold is the right fit for your family. Before leaving the interview, Fold staff members will meet with the teen to let them know if they have been invited to participate in the program.
- If invited, the teen (and family) is given a few days to decide if they want to accept the invitation to participate in The Fold’s program. The teen is given a specific day to call our office with his or her decision. If the teen calls and says, "yes," an intake date is scheduled for the teen to start the program.
