Admissions

Dear Prospective West Hill Families,

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about The West Hill School and for considering West Hill for your child’s preschool experience. At The West Hill School, we create a nurturing atmosphere where individuality is valued and honored. We believe that a diverse and welcoming community fosters a positive experience for all. We respect and appreciate differences among members of our school family, including age, culture, disability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, learning styles, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. We are committed to achieving a safe and inclusive environment across all areas of school life.

The West Hill School application process includes a Parent/Guardian Visit, submission of student application and fee, and a Child Visit. West Hill begins accepting applications and fees for the subsequent school year on July 1st. Parent/Guardian Visits are conducted throughout the school year and both the Parent/Guardian Visit and application with fee must be completed prior to the Child Visit being scheduled. Child Visits begin in late autumn.

Admissions decisions are made by the Admissions Committee in late January/early February. We welcome applications after this time, however, applicants will be placed into our wait pool and will be considered as enrollment permits.

Thank you again for your interest in The West Hill School.

Sincerely,
Michelle Fleitas
Director of Admission & Marketing

How To Apply to The West Hill School

  1. Contact the School to receive age appropriate information.
  2. Call to schedule an appointment with our Director of Admissions for a parent/guardian visit and tour.
  3. Complete the Application. A completed application form must be submitted, accompanied by a non-refundable $50 fee. You may fill out and submit our online application form, or download and return the PDF version.
  4. When we know what spaces are available, after taking siblings into account, we will contact you to schedule a time for you to visit with your child. During this visit, your child will spend approximately 20 minutes in the classroom.

Acceptance to West Hill is determined by the child visit, equal distribution of boys and girls in the class, when possible, and the availability of space in the appropriate group after having taken siblings into consideration.
