Application Process

Westminster is a covenant Christian school. This means that we partner with families where at least one parent is a Christ-follower and actively involved in a local Christian church. This is based on our belief that parents have the primary responsibility for educating their children, and parents rely on the broader family of faith including the church and the Christian school to fulfill that responsibility. These communities hold shared beliefs and values as well as a common understanding of what it means to be a believer and a Christ follower.

Looking Ahead to the 2025-26 Season
