  • Q: What is the difference between a Prospective Parent Tour and the Admission Open House?

    Prospective Parent Tours are for parents and focus on curriculum, school philosophy and a tour of the facility. The Prospective Parent Tour allows parents the opportunity to see academic instruction during the school day.

We recommend that parents attend a Prospective Parent Tour and that they bring their children for the Admission Open House. The entire family is welcome!

I wanted to take the time to say thank you for the opportunity that Westminster has given my son to become part of such a great school. He has changed and grown so much since he joined the school. He has more confidence and is much happier. My son has made many good friends and has even become part of the football team, falling in love with a sport I never thought he would have played. I look forward to the next four years here and the wonderful atmosphere. Thank you again for all you did.
