Pre-K – 8th Grade
We are so glad that you are interested in Westtown School for your child’s pre-K through 8th-grade education, where they will be inspired and challenged to realize their individual gifts in a diverse community. Through our application process, we encourage you to get to know Westtown School on a deeper level as we also get to know you and your child. We look forward to getting to know you!
To apply, follow the steps below.
STEP 1: Request Information

STEP 3: Begin your Application
Begin the Standard Application Online (SAO). Click “Register/login” or “Get started with the SAO.” If this is your first SAO application, you will need to create an SSAT/SAO account. If you have used SAO before, you will simply log in. Submitting the student profile and paying the application fee will transmit the application to us. Student and parent essays, recommendations, and transcripts can follow. After we receive your initial application, we will send a short supplemental form to complete.
STEP 4: Schedule a Student Visit
For PreK and K your child will visit with Tearson Morrison for 30-40 minutes of playtime & games to get to know them and they will have an all-applicant play date in December.
1st – 8th grade students will have a visit day in their current grade. Tearson will reach out to you to set up your child’s visit once you have submitted the Student Profile of their application.
STEP 5: Testing
For Lower School applicants: if your child has completed a WPPSI or WISC in the past year, we will gladly add that to their application file. We are happy to have this additional information about their learning profile, but it is not required.
For Middle School applicants: testing is encouraged but not required. Applicants who have testing they wish to submit are welcome to do so. These tests are helpful for placement after enrollment.

Westtown Schoool is one of the test locations for the SSAT for the general public. Testing dates for all locations and registration can be found on the SSAT website.
