Applying to Westridge

Applying to Westridge

Westridge welcomes applications for girls entering grades 4-10. Admission entry points for the 2021-2022 school year will be in grades 4, 6, 7, and 9. Admission into non-entry grades is dependent upon available space. Please contact the admission office with questions about non-entry grades before applying.

To be considered for admission, each applicant must complete the steps described below.  For detailed application instructions by grade-level, to request information, or to register for events, please create a free account in Ravenna.

Please note:

Westridge is not requiring nor encouraging students to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) for admission to fall 2021. If taken, students can choose to send ISEE score reports to be included in their application file. Submitting scores will not provide an advantage or disadvantage to any student.


STEP 1:
APPLY ONLINE

by January 11, 2021 by 5 pm

Complete and submit your preliminary application forms in Ravenna to get started. 

To be considered an applicant, please submit the family information form, parent questionnaire, and student questionnaire along with the $75 application fee.  Apply by November 1 for a reduced application fee of $25.

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:
SIGN UP FOR AN ONLINE INTERVIEW

APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE
NOVEMBER-FEBRUARY 1

Because we are not able to meet in-person this year, your daughter can expect to participate in two interviews during the admission process; she will join her parent(s)/guardian(s) in the first half of the Online Family Interview, and on a separate date and time, she will join a Online Student Group Interview.

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


STEP 3:
TAKE THE CHARACTER SKILLS SNAPSHOT

by FEBRUARY 1, 2021

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.


STEP 4: SUBMIT DOCUMENTS

by FEBRUARY 1, 2021

By February 1, 2021, we will need the following documents from your daughter’s current school:

  • Two teacher evaluations
  • Transcripts from the 2019-2020 school year, and the first semester or trimester of the 2020-2021 school year

* If applying for financial aid, the application and all required financial documents are due by February 1, 2021. Please visit www.westridge.org/affording for more information about applying for financial aid.
