Admission Policy

At The Willow School, the admission of students, employment of faculty and staff, operations of the program, and governance of the school are open to all who are qualified regardless of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, or disability.

Applicants for admission must complete our formal admissions process in order for their applications to be considered. The steps required in our admissions process differ based on the grade for which an applicant is applying and is dependent on available space in that grade.

Our Admission Committee reviews all applications and determines whether an applicant is an appropriate fit for The Willow School, after considering all pieces of a student’s file and our ability to serve them academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.

Siblings, legacies, children of employees, and students with other associations with The Willow School may be afforded priority consideration, depending on available space and other factors.

The Willow School Admission Office adheres to the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for Admission to Independent Schools.
