Admissions

Westwood Christian School does not discriminate in student admission or services on the basis of race, color, or ethnicity.  A child must be in the appropriate age for the class he/she is applying for on or before September 1st.  For instance, a student entering K-3 must be three years old on or before September 1st of that year. The child must also be potty trained and able to use the restroom independently to enter

K-3.


Students are admitted on the basis of available space and submission of required documentation.  Admission is decided by interview. Interviews take place in June. When classes are full, prospective students are placed on a waiting list and are called as space becomes available. All new admissions are on a probationary basis for the first grading period.

Enrollment for New Students

WELCOME! 

Enrollment for 2024-2025 school year is underway. Our classroom space is limited, and many classes fill quickly.  Students are not accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Once classes are full, WCS keeps a waiting list of all applicants with completed requirements.  


Each new student will be interviewed once WCS has received all the required records.  Families of new students will be contacted in June to schedule the interview. 


Scholarship students (Florida Tax Credit, Family Empowerment Scholarship for Educational Options, Family Empowerment Scholarship for Unique Abilities, AAA) must provide WCS with an eligibility confirmation letter upon return of the enrollment packet.  DO NOT delay applying for these scholarships!  Funds are limited and not guaranteed from year to year.


Families without scholarships must meet with WCS Administration prior to the beginning of the school year to discuss monthly required payments.
