  • Families interested in applying should complete the Inquire Form Now
  • Upon completing the form, families will receive an email within 1 working day. The email will come from “Social Solutions” and allow you to access the application through an online portal.
  • Each student applicant MUST have their own unique email. A Better Chance recommends parents create a unique @gmail account for each student applying because they will need to use a @gmail account if they are accepted to the program.

Please note that the inquiry form is not an application.
