Lower School (DK-5) Admissions Process
This will add your family to our admissions system so we can provide you with the necessary information to move through the application process.
Starting in September, we will be conducting both weekday and Saturday tours on our campus. Weekday tours offer a chance to see our school in action. To attend, you must first complete an inquiry form. Once submitted, you will see available tour dates and times.
Throughout the fall and winter, prospective families are also welcome at certain Willows events, both virtual and in-person. When you complete and submit an inquiry form, we will contact you with opportunities to learn more about our inclusive community.
We will begin accepting applications for the 2024-2025 school year on August 21, 2023. A $150.00 application fee is required to complete the online application. The application deadline for DK-5 is January 12, 2024.
After touring the school and submitting an application, you will schedule an in-person interview with the admission team. This meeting is an opportunity for you to discuss your children, share information, and ask questions you may have about the school. Please do not bring your child to this appointment.
Interviews are also offered in Spanish or Korean upon request.
For DK/K applicants, we plan to host group assessments on campus in February of 2024. For 1st-5th applicants, we plan to schedule in-person half day visits in their current grade level on a rolling basis throughout the year.
In addition to the application, we require the following materials:
- For Developmental Kindergarten and Kindergarten: a Preschool Evaluation Form filled out by the preschool. You will be able to send this form directly to your preschool through your admissions portal.
- For grades 1–5: a Student Evaluation Form filled out by the applicant's current teacher and sent directly to The Willows. You will be able to send this form directly to the teacher through your admissions portal.
