Admissions at The Willows involves three important steps:
- Shadow with a current student
We ask each prospective student to spend part of a school day on campus. Student hosts will guide the prospective student in getting to know our students, in experiencing our classes, and in meeting teachers, coaches, and administrators. We believe that shadowing is the best way to test the fit between the prospective student and The Willows.
- Complete a parent interview
We ask parents of prospective students to meet with the admissions committee for an interview. During this time, we encourage parents to ask questions, convey their goals for their daughter, and discuss the mission and environment of our school.
- Submit a completed application

After the three steps are completed, the admissions committee will make its acceptance decision and notify parents.
In addition, candidates for 9th grade must complete a placement exam on the first Saturday in January. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
