Application Process

Visit Campus

Every potential student and parent/guardian is encouraged to visit the campus.

Entrance Exam

Every potential student completes an entrance exam.

Complete Application

Along with a completed application, the student will provide all other documentation such as official transcripts, achievement test scores, immunization records and discipline records.

Student/Family Interview

Upon completion of the entrance exam, a student will interview with the admissions committee.  Once all the records are received, the admissions committee, consisting of the Headmaster, Curriculum Director, Guidance Counselor and Learning Lab Coordinator, will review the required information and determine eligibility of the applicant as a student at Westwood.

If the student has a history of discipline problems or is academically weak, he or she may be denied admission due to the severity of the behavior or weakness.  He or she will be accepted only if certain stipulations are accepted by the parents and student.  These stipulations may include mandatory lab work, out-of-school tutoring, summer school or summer lab participation, counseling or other requirements set forth by the Admissions Committee.

Once a student’s application is accepted, he or she will be admitted for a probationary period of one or two semesters or for the remainder of the school year. If at the end of the probationary period, the student has not met the required stipulations, made academic progress, or met behavioral standards, the student’s acceptance to Westwood will be terminated.

Westwood admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities made to students at the school.  It does not discriminate in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, or athletic and other school administered programs. 

Westwood reserves the right to prohibit admission to any person who has given birth to a child or fathered a child.
