Admission Process Steps

Welcome to BEST! We believe that the admission process is an important step in making sure that we can provide the best educational experience for your child. Here are the steps for the admission process:


  1. Schedule an appointment by calling us at 864-977-1285 to arrange a visit to our campus. We believe that a visit to BEST is essential to experience our facilities and meet with the Executive Director. During your visit, you will be given a personal tour of the campus, followed by an interview with the Executive Director. We value your time, so please allow two hours for your tour and interview. All applicants are required to participate in an interview. If you are an out-of-town applicant, we will conduct a virtual interview. We also encourage prospective students who apply after the school year has begun to shadow BEST for a day. If parents are interested in submitting an application after completing these steps, please note that there is a $50 application fee required.


  1. The BEST Admission Board will review your application documents and interview to determine if BEST can meet all of your child’s educational needs. We will notify you of our decision within two weeks.


  1. All new students will be placed on a 30-day probationary period, during which time the student will be assessed and their cumulative records evaluated. We want to make sure that the family and the child are compatible with the goals of BEST and are willing to work cooperatively with our instructors and administration in order to be enrolled in the school. We look forward to welcoming you and your child to BEST!
