2. Application and Transcripts

K-8 Application

3. Class Visit

While school is in session The Willow School requires a class visit for applying students to experience our classrooms. This visit also gives the staff an opportunity to fully evaluate each student. Children entering Kindergarten are invited to visit for the morning. Children entering grades 1-8 spend an entire day.

During this time, your child will be an active participant in the classroom and will engage in all activities. When classes are not in session we will substitute a one-hour student interview for the classroom visit.

4. Acceptance

The Willow School will review your child’s current transcripts as well as the evaluation conducted by the staff during his/her visit. You will be notified of our decision within two weeks of the classroom visit or interview.

5. Registration

After your child has been accepted we ask for a $500 non-refundable registration fee along with a signed contract.  This fee will reserve a place for your child and be applied toward registration and book fees.

6. Transcripts

After acceptance, please ask your child’s previous school to send copies of all tests, records and transcripts. These are required for our records and will allow us to more fully prepare for your child.

7. Waiting List

If a child has been accepted, but the class is full, the child will be placed on a waiting list. The non-refundable $50 application fee will hold the child’s place on the waiting list.

8. Other Information

A child may enter Kindergarten if he or she is five (5) years old on or before September 1 of the current year, unless pre-approved by The Willow School Principal. All children entering public or private schools in Florida for the first time must have proof of immunization against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, poliomyelitis, and rubella.
