Admissions Process

 

Admissions Process

Applications to join Woodland Country Day School are accepted on a rolling basis.  The purpose of our admissions process is to ensure a good fit academically and socially between your child, your family and Woodland Country Day School.  Woodland  seeks students who not only benefit from our program, but also contribute.

Information Packet and Tour

We would be delighted to send you an information packet about Woodland Country Day School and schedule a tour of our campus to familiarize you with all that we offer. Please call our Main Office at 856-453-8499 or click the tab ‘Information Request’.

Admissions Application

When you are ready to begin the admissions process, a completed application, accompanied by a $75 non-refundable application fee is required.  Click here to download a two-page application in PDF format.

Visiting Day

Once an application is received, your child will join us for a visiting day, where they will participate in the daily activities of the class they would be joining.  They will complete class work to be used to assist in their evaluation.  Visiting students should demonstrate academic potential, developmental maturity, readiness for Woodland’s curriculum and have fun with their new friends.
