The Wellington experience begins here.


The Wellington School welcomes applications for admission from students entering preschool through grade 12. An admission application is required for students at every grade level.

The application process generally starts at the beginning of a new academic year. Once applications are received, a member of the Wellington Admissions Office will contact your family to schedule a screening and a school visit. The first round of acceptance letters will be issued on March 1. Applications submitted after this date will be considered where space is available.


How to apply

There are slight differences in the admissions process depending on the grade of the child. Please review the process and required paperwork for each level.


Student visit and evaluations

Young students will be screened individually at our school by our Admissions staff. Every prospective student will visit his or her grade-level classes to experience Wellington firsthand. Feedback from teachers during that visit day becomes a part of the overall admissions assessment.
