New students may enter the program at any time based on available space.

The curriculum and course offerings will remain the same during the entire program period with electives (see course catalog) changing with the semester. However, the lesson plans, methodologies and experiential techniques will vary thereby giving repeat clients new perspectives on the subject matter.
