Applying For Enrollment


Parents who are interested in The Wetherill School may call or email to schedule a tour and an introduction to the school. Weekday mornings are the best time to see our mixed-age groups of 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds in action. If you are interested in our after Kindergarten Enrichment Program, weekday afternoons are the best days to observe the classes. Following your tour you will be given an information packet that includes an application form. If you wish to proceed with the application process please submit the completed form with a $50 non-refundable application fee. An application form may also be downloaded below. Once your application is received you will be contacted in early spring to arrange for your child to visit for an informal interview with the head of school. Upon completion of the interview process, if you and the head of school determine that Wetherill is the best placement for your child you will receive an enrollment packet. The enrollment packet will contain a Tuition Agreement that must be submitted with a non-refundable $750 deposit to hold your child’s place for the next academic year.

Wetherill uses the Pennsylvania Private Academic School cutoff dates for admissions. The youngest children must be 2 years 7 months of age in September, and Kindergarten children must be at least 4 years 7 months before the first day of school in accordance with Pennsylvania Private Academic School Code.
