Admission Criteria

Maple Hall Academy serves boys ages 10-15 at time of enrollment.

Students must possess a minimum full scale IQ of 80 or higher on an approved standardized test, although most Maple Hall students fall in the Average to Above Average range.

Students must not exhibit exclusionary criteria.

Typical academic problems: We find many Maple Hall students are easily distracted and struggle with tracking and completing tasks.  Many have experienced repeated academic failure thus becoming easily discouraged. It is common to receive a student who is not performing at grade level or living up to his potential, and some students may lack academic motivation.  A high percentage of applicants have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Typical behavior problems: Many students who are referred to Maple Hall Academy may exhibit anxiety, depression, trauma, technology addiction, emotional dysregulation, and oppositional or defiant behaviors at home and/or school. These boys may be making poor choices for friends or recreational activities and refuse to listen to their parents. Maple Hall Academy students often have difficulty with peer relationships: their choice of friends, maintaining enduring relationships, and lacking basic friendship skills.  Another trait amongst our students is that they often struggle with accepting responsibility for their behaviors, commonly blaming their problems on others or situations.

Exclusionary Criteria

We have found that the following exclusionary criterion in potential students does not allow them to be successful in our program. Thus, Maple Hall Academy’s policy is that we have a 90-day assessment period. During this time it allows for determination of each child’s appropriateness for our program.

Aggression:  Students with current or frequent episodes of major aggression or violent behavior outside the home are not typically appropriate for our program. Severe aggression at Maple Hall could lead to dismissal. Enrollment eligibility is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Substance Abuse: Students whose primary diagnosis is one of substance abuse or dependence are not appropriate for Maple Hall. Maple Hall Academy is not a substance abuse program.


Other Exclusionary Criteria:

  • ANY history of elopement
  • Students who are homicidal, start fires or abuse animals.
  • Students who are actively suicidal.
  • Students who are actively psychotic.
  • Students who have active eating disorders.
  • Students who have an engrained pattern of running away.
