We are delighted you have decided to pursue admission for your child. From start to finish, the process typically takes approximately four weeks.
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.
We use an online application process that helps families keep track of the process and which forms they need to complete and submit. If you need any assistance, please contact our admission office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An important part of our admission process includes ensuring that the students we admit will be successful at WCA. We have determined that reviewing a student’s scores on nationally normed tests provides important information to help us in the admissions decision.
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.
It is important for us to personally meet every family applying to WCA.
We setup a time for all families seeking admission to WCA to meet with one of our administrators. This gives us an opportunity to further explain the mission and philosophy of education at WCA. It also gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have about the school. If your child will be entering grades 6 through 12, we would need them to attend the meeting along with you.
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.
