Frequently Asked Questions

What do you look for in an applicant?

The Admissions Committee at Westminster attempts to enroll well-rounded students who are intelligent and ambitious, intellectually curious, and interested in others. They aspire to be good citizens who seek a strong academic foundation necessary for college and for a life of service and achievement.

What can I do to prepare my child for the admissions process?

The admissions process is designed to give the Admissions Committee the best overall picture of your child. The best thing you can do for your child is to follow the process and have all the required forms submitted in a timely manner. If you need additional guidance, please call our office at 404-609-6202.

Are parents required to schedule a parent meeting as part of the application process?

No, there is no such requirement. However, you are certainly welcome to schedule a visit if you have specific questions. We encourage interested parents to visit with us during our Open House events and/or the small group parent information sessions and tours that we offer throughout the admissions season. Please be sure to check Ravenna to view upcoming events.

My child currently has one teacher, but your application requires two teacher recommendation forms. What should I do?

You may request a teacher from the previous year to complete a recommendation form for your child.

Does the deadline mean all forms are due?

With the exception of the JATP/SSAT results, all admissions materials should be received by our office by the materials deadline in January. JATP results are due in early February, and we will accept results of the February SSAT, provided that results are released to Westminster when registering for the test. We may schedule your child's evaluation after this date, but that does not conflict with the materials deadline. Files that are incomplete will not be reviewed by the Admissions committee until after April and will be considered late applications. At that point in time, upon review of a complete file, the best initial decision Westminster can offer an applicant is waitlist.

Do you accept new students in the middle of the year?

No. We are unable to accommodate new students once the school year begins. Even though there may be an instance where a current family moves away during the school year, we will not bring new students into the school until the following year.

May I come on campus and take a tour?

Yes, we offer many small group information sessions and tours starting in October and going through early February at each division—Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School. These sessions are for parents only and take place during the school day. Please refer to Ravenna to view upcoming events and tour dates. We look forward to welcoming you on our campus.
