How to Apply

Ready to Apply?

Click below to begin the application process in three simple steps (including creating a PWS account)! We are currently accepting applications for the 2020-21 school year. We also consider mid-year applications by class and as space permits.

1. Apply
Complete and submit an online application, one per student. (Please note, you will be required to create a PWS account to submit.)

2. Pay
A final step in the online application will be to submit a $75 nonrefundable application fee per student applying.

3. Supplemental Materials
If your child has already been in a school environment, please be sure to complete the supplemental materials. Required forms can be downloaded from your application.


After you have submitted the online application and supplemental materials, your application is complete and you can look forward to next steps, which may include an interview and student shadow experience.


After the Enrollment Committee has reviewed the complete application, your family will be notified of an admissions decision.


If the student is accepted, our Business Office will contact you to complete the enrollment process. At this point, you will also be notified of any tuition adjustment awards, if applicable.
