Admissions Brochure
Open House
Both the student and parent Open Houses are for applicant families who are applying for the 2015-2016 school year. Because space is limited, if your family is not applying for the 2015-2016 school year, please continue to view our website for more information and then register for an Open House in the appropriate year.

Parent Open House
Two Parent Open Houses are held in the evening for prospective parents. Parents are given an opportunity to meet Windward department chairs, administrators, parents, and students. The program gives prospective parents an overview of the curriculum and allows them to visit with students and parents currently involved with the School. This evening is only for parents as we have several special student Open Houses held in the afternoon.

Student Open House
Two student Open Houses are held after school to allow prospective students the opportunity to visit classrooms and meet current Windward students and faculty. Hands-on classroom experiences, athletics, and arts are part of this fun afternoon. Snacks are provided.
