Enrollment Process & Documentation Checklist
Step 1: Attend An Informational Meeting
Step 2: Complete an Online Application
Once you've attended a WPA Information Meeting, complete an online application to begin the enrollment process.
A $95.00 non-refundable application fee per student will be applied when you submit the online application.
Step 3: Submit Required Documentation
In addition to the online application, all documents required to complete a student application must be turned in to the Admissions Coordinator along with the online application. Once all documents have been received and placement testing has been administered, your student will meet with the academic dean to discuss the testing results. Because classes fill up quickly, a completed student file is of the utmost importance in transitioning your student through the enrollment process.

Step 4: Placement Testing
Placement testing will be completed prior to enrollment and will help determine the student's readiness for the grade level and ability to meet the academic expectations of the program. This placement testing is for 3rd - 12th grades. A testing time will be schedule by the Admissions Coordinator once an application has been submitted. WPA will use a Standardized Test in language arts and a WPA grade level math exam, in addition to requiring a pre-determined, grade-level appropriate written essay. WPA will also use an in-house assessment test to determine the student's readiness for K5-2nd grades.
The testing fee is $55.00 for 3rd - 12th grades and $27.50 for K5-2nd grades.
Step 5: Admissions Interview
A meeting with the prospective student(s), the parents and the Administrator will be scheduled to discuss the placement/assessment testing results, grade placement, class selection and graduation requirements. This meeting will not be set until the student file and placement testing are complete. The Administrator will also determine if WPA is the ideal fit for either the student and/or the family.
Step 6: Acceptance Letter
Finally, after all the above steps have been completed, a letter of acceptance will be e-mailed to the family. Following notification of acceptance, the family has two weeks in which to respond by enrolling in classes. The applicant is considered enrolled when classes have been chosen with the school and the tuition and registration deposit submitted to the academy. If the family does not respond within the time allowed, your spot in the class will be opened to the next available applicant.
