Admissions Process:

  • Shadow with a current student.
    We ask each prospective student to spend part of a school day on campus. Student hosts will guide the prospective student in getting to know our students, in experiencing our classes, and in meeting teachers, coaches, and administrators. We believe that shadowing is the best way to test the fit between the prospective student and Willows.  Register for a Shadow Day


  • Submit a completed application.
    Click here to access the online application. As part of the application, we also request copies of final report cards and standardized test results from the past two years, and we require a $50 processing fee. Applications are due by January 15th. Those submitted after that date will be accessed on a first-come, first-served basis.


  • Schedule a parent conference.
    We ask parents of prospective students to meet with the admissions committee for an interview. During this time, we encourage parents to ask questions, convey their goals for their daughter, and discuss the mission and environment of our school.


After the three steps are completed, the admissions committee will make its acceptance decision and notify parents.

In addition, candidates for 9th grade must complete a placement exam on the first Saturday in December. We will have a make-up placement test on January 17th for those who were unable to attend the initial testing day.

Please contact Kathy Ferry, Director of Admissions, at 847.824.6900 or for more information or to schedule a shadow day.
