What does the admission process look like at Westmont?
You are welcome to book a tour and visit our school and campus prior to completing an application form. After the mandatory student visit, our Admission Team consisting of an Admission Coordinator, the Head of School, Assistant Principal, Resource Teacher and Classroom Teacher will evaluate the application and decide whether the student is accepted into the program, whether the student needs to be placed in the waiting pool for that program when spaces are not available, or whether the student is declined admission into the program. For more information about the admission steps for various programs, please visit our admission page.
Is there a cost associated with the application form?
In order to be processed, all applications require the payment of a $150 fee, which is non-refundable.
How much does it cost to attend Westmont?
Tuition at Westmont depends on the program your child is enrolling into, but ranges between approximately $730-$1100 per month. For details on tuition costs, please visit our admissions page.
How long does it take to find out if a student has been accepted?
Most of our programs have a wait pool of applicants, who will only be contacted once a spot has become available. Our Admission Team will gather the necessary information for a decision to be communicated forthwith. There is not set time frame for this to happen as spaces can become available all the way up to the start of the school year in September if families move or decide not to attend for other reasons.
Is there financial assistance available for families to attend Westmont or to assist families who hit financial hardship?
Westmont has two programs to offer financial assistance to families. For new families to the school who may not be able to pay the tuition, we have available our Growing Together scholarship. This scholarship is funded through current family donations. The second assistance program is our Bursary. Westmont’s bursary is available to already enrolled families who have had unforeseen financial hardship impact their family. Bursary support is provided for up to two years and typically is in the range of 25% tuition covered. Both programs require an application through Apple Financial to show financial need.
