The Fawkes Academy Intake Process

Admission deadlines are twice per year for Fawkes Academy: August 15th for the start of term 1 enrollment and January 15th for the mid-year enrollment

First Steps

The intake process starts with the submission of the downloadable Fawkes Intake Form.  An intake meeting with the Admissions Manager will then be set quickly after the submission of this form, if a program in the lower mainland is what you are looking for.  This meeting is a great opportunity for Fawkes staff to get to know you, your priorities for your child’s education, your child’s struggles in their current educational institution, and some of your child’s likes and dislikes.  This meeting is also a great opportunity for you to get to know about us, and receive a tour of the location of your preference.  If you are interested in our online learning program you would also submit the intake form for online learning to the Admissions Manager. If you determine Fawkes Academy would be a good fit for your child, the next stage in our campus admissions would include trial days with our classroom clinical team (includes Teacher, BCBA, Counsellor). For online learning the next step would be determining availability on our wait list for one of our online teachers.

Preparing for Enrollment

At Fawkes Academy we like to have as much information on a potential student as possible to ensure a successful transition and determine if our school will be able to meet the needs of your child.  In a centre based program, your child would be invited to come into their prospective classroom for up to three, one hour, sessions with our Clinical Team. This trial period provides the staff a great opportunity to get to know a potential student and begin assessment so we know where to start with learning goals and behaviour management plans while making a final determination on enrollment.  This trial also gives our potential student a great opportunity to get to know the staff and students in the program they will be attending and see if it is the right fit for them. Please note it is the clinical team that provides the final approval of enrollment.

Confirmation of Enrollment

For our campus based classrooms: After the trial period Fawkes Academy will confirm enrollment with a family.  When enrollment is confirmed schedules will be finalized, tuition payments will be organized, a start date will be set, and a plan for gradual entry will be laid out for a family.  In our online learning program: If an online teacher is available, administration will confirm enrollment with a family. Staff may be hired to work with a student if necessary and educational resources will be provided for the start date.  Please call or email Dennis Tal at 604-261-8782, or at, or download the attached intake form and submit it to us by mail (1110-6900 Graybar Road, Richmond, BC, V6W 0A5), email (, or fax (604-232-9515).
