Admissions Process

Admissions season at WYHS begins with our Open House for Prospective Parents and Students in the end of November or early December. Attendees meet many of the personalities at the school, attend modelclasses and learn about the many facets of the WYHS experiance to present students and parents about WYHS.

At the Open House, the school’s Viewbook (Click on the picture to see the Viewbook) , which tells the story of WYHS in print, and Application for Admission are distributed. In addition to the application, students applying to WYHS submit their three previous years’ transcripts and three recommendation forms. Applicants take the SecondarySchool Admissions Test (SSAT) Exam (in most years on the second Sunday in January) during thesecond week either at WYHS or another location.

The best way to become acquainted with a school is through its students. Students who volunteer as Student Ambassadors converse with students by e-mail and over the phone and give tours to visiting students.
