How to Apply to The Wetherill School

Following your call, email, or tour, an information packet will be provided to you that will include an application form. If you would like to apply without a tour, please click here, there will be a $50 non-refundable application fee.

Upon receipt of the application form and fee, we will contact you regarding enrollment. If we anticipate available space for your child’s age group, we will send enrollment documents in late fall. Once we receive the signed enrollment agreement, you will be invoiced for a $750 deposit that will hold your child’s place for the next academic year. The deposit is credited toward the total tuition.

New enrollees will be invited to visit the school to meet with a teacher in late spring or summer.

Enrollment in The Wetherill School is based on equal distribution of genders and ages in the classes, when possible, and the availability of space in the appropriate group after having taken returning children and their siblings into consideration.
