How Do I Apply?

Join Our Family of Friends

Thank you for your interest in Westfield Friends School. Since its establishment in 1788, Westfield Friends has sought to deliver excellence in education and to instill a lifelong love of learning in its students. Selecting the right educational setting for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent or guardian. Because the unique spirit of Westfield Friends is best experienced in person, please contact us for a tour if you are interested in seeing us in action.
 

You know your child better than anyone in the world. That’s why we want to learn about your child from you, not just from words and numbers on an application form, report card, or teacher recommendation form. We look forward to speaking with you about your family and helping you through the application process every step of the way!  

Our admissions process is designed to help us discover the strengths, talents, interests, abilities and educational goals of our applicants. The qualities we review help us determine the ways in which a student and his or her family will contribute to and strengthen the Westfield Friends School community, as well as how the School can help provide an exceptional experience for the student.
