Print a blank copy of the application and complete it by hand, or complete the application online. Print the application before you leave the page. The website will not save your personal information. You can pay the Application Fee online through the website Pay Online tab. Check back later. We’re developing an easy way to submit the Application too.
Tours are conducted periodically throughout the school year for prospective parents. They provide the opportunity to view the program in session and are designed for parents only. Please call the school office for the tour schedule.
Acceptance to Westminster will be determined after reviewing all applications. The school contacts applicants only if a vacancy becomes available. Upon acceptance, all necessary materials will be mailed.
Proof of current immunizations and physical examination is required to be on file for each child admitted to the school.
Factors considered in placing children in the appropriate classes include: availability of space, birth date, balance of boys and girls and staff recommendations. Because of these factors–and because our primary concern is to place each child appropriately–the make-up of individual classes may vary from year to year.
