STEP 1:
APPLY ONLINE

by January 8, 2024

To be considered an applicant, please create an account in Ravenna, our online application system, and submit the preliminary application forms—family information form, parent questionnaire, and student questionnaire—along with the $100 application fee by January 8, or complete Step 1 by November 15 for a reduced application fee of $30.

Application fee waivers may be requested by emailing admission@westridge.org. Waivers are reserved for those whom the application fee represents a significant financial hardship.


STEP 2:
TAKE THE CHARACTER SKILLS SNAPSHOT*

by January 8, 2024
*grade 6 & up only

The Character Skills Snapshot (CSS) is an innovative online tool that measures students’ preferences, attitudes, and beliefs about their character and is meant to complement the student transcript, interview, and teacher evaluations. 

More information on the CSS, including registration and fee waiver details, can be found in the application steps in your Ravenna account. This step is only required for students applying for grade 6 and above.


STEP 3:
INTERVIEW
(FOR STUDENTS & PARENTS)

APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE
NOVEMBER-FEBRUARY 1

A key part of our admission process is to get to know you and your student in two separate interview events.

Parent(s)/guardian(s) will participate in an Online Parent Interview. On another date, your student will join a Student Group Interview. Parent interviews are only required for 4th-8th grade families, while student interviews are required regardless of grade.

Parent interviews may be scheduled through Ravenna once the preliminary applications forms are submitted. Student group interviews will be assigned in January by the Admission Office. 


STEP 4:

By February 1, we will need the following documents from your student's current school:

  • Two teacher evaluations
  • Transcripts from the 2022-2023 school year, and the first semester or trimester of the 2023-2024 school year

If applying for financial aid, the application and all required financial documents are due by February 1. Please visit www.westridge.org/affording for more information about applying for financial aid.
