Application Process

Once you have determined that Waterford is a good fit, we invite you to begin the process by completing the Application for Admission. We are now accepting applications for the 2022-23 School Year. The application deadline for Priority Admission is January 31. The deadline for Regular Admission is March  1. The application fee is $50.00.  Applications received after the deadline will be placed into the Wait Pool.  If/when a space becomes available, the applicant will then complete the balance of the admission process.

School Visit

All applicants and their parents/guardians should visit the school. This important part of the admissions process allows the school and family to become a better acquainted. During the visit, the applicant will tour the campus and visit classes. You will also have the opportunity to visit classes in session and meet faculty and students.  Please call the Admissions Office to schedule this visit or plan your personalized visit by completing the online form.

Evaluation and Testing

All applicants are evaluated to assess readiness and scholastic achievement. Applicants for PreK and Kindergarten will be evaluated by the appropriate grade-level teachers. Applicants for Classes I – XII will be evaluated in reading and math by specialists from the school’s learning center. The Admissions Office will call to schedule a time for the evaluation.

Diversity & Nondiscrimination Policies

The Waterford School recognizes that the intellectual curiosity and self-reflection it desires from its students can best be accomplished in an environment that contains multiple points of view engendered by diverse life experiences. Toward that end, the School has established policies designed to attract and retain faculty, students and families who represent socio-economic and ethnic diversity.

The Waterford School admits students of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The Waterford School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or genetic information in administration of its educational policies, admissions and financial aid policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
