Admission

Home/Admission

Thank you for your interest in admission to Westland School.  You’ll find everything you need to apply here, but if you have any questions, just call our office at 310-472-5544. We look forward to meeting you during the admission process when you visit for an open house with a campus tour.

Admission Criteria

Westland strives to create balanced classes within a strong and healthy community.  In doing so, our admission considerations may include academic and learning potential, gender balance, sibling relationships, or promoting the school’s commitment to diversity of all kinds.

Where applicants meet admission criteria, Westland gives preference to siblings, children of personnel, and alumni children.  Having a current student enrolled at Westland is the basis for sibling priority.

Admission decisions are made at the discretion of the Head of School and the admission committee.  Admission and continuing enrollment are dependent on parental support of the school’s mission and full disclosure by the parent/guardian of any and all medical or learning conditions affecting the child’s health, behavior, and/or learning potential.  Students and families whose needs can be met by the school will be invited to re-enroll from year to year.

Westland enrolls about 20 students for kindergarten each year, with occasional openings each year for grades 1 through 5.

Kindergarten applicants must be 5 years old by October 15th of their kindergarten year.

Please fill out this inquiry form if you would like more information.

Please call us at 310-472-5544 to RSVP or for more information.
