How To Apply

We are delighted you have decided to pursue admission for your child. From start to finish, the process typically takes approximately four weeks.

When to Applyhow_to_apply

Washington Christian Academy has rolling admission; however, to receive priority consideration for transportation approval and Tuition Assistance awards, submit your application as soon as you have made your enrollment decision. Otherwise, we encourage families to begin the application process as soon as possible, as space in particular grades and classes can be limited.

Step Two - Testing

WCA requires standardized testing scores as a part of each student’s application; testing must have been completed within the previous academic year and scores must be nationally normed. Submit a copy of your child’s recent testing results, or if necessary, WCA can conduct admission testing for a $75 fee. If you indicated such on the application, WCA also requires a copy of your child’s IEP or other test report. Due to the extra review process for these documents, an additional $75 fee applies.

Step Three - The Family Interview

All families seeking admission to WCA will be interviewed by one of our administrators. This gives us an opportunity to further explain the mission and philosophy of education of WCA. It also gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have about the school. We require students applying to grades 6 through 12 to attend the interview.

Step Four - The Admission Decision

When the application file is complete, the Admission Committee will review it. As soon as a decision is made, the Admission Office will inform you by letter.

We look forward to working together with you in the shared goal of educating your children. If at anytime you have questions, please feel free to call WCA at 240-390-0429 or email the Admission Office.
