STEP 3: Once Steps 1 and 2 are complete, read and completely fill out the application form below. Please fill out one per child. There is a parent AND child section. Be sure to hit SUBMIT when you are done.
STEP 4- Below the application, click “Donate” to submit your $25 non-refundable application fee. If your child ends up joining us, this money will go toward your 1st month’s contribution. Only one $25 is needed even if you have multiple kids. If we do not have room, we will put you on the waiting list and return this fee. Contact us for questions.
STEP 5: If possible, do a visiting week(s): A visiting week allows the student to experience what it is like to be here and lets us to make sure the student is a good fit for our environment. Your child can attend a one or two week “trial period” ($75.00 for one week; $150 for two weeks). This longer visit allows students to participate in the variety of experience at Wildwood since each day is different.
Step 6: Final Enrollment: After the visiting week (if applicable) and upon review of our fee structure, complete the Contribution Proposal Worksheet. We will review all this information to determine if we have a space available at the desired tier. If accepted, pay your $200 deposit which will go toward your last month’s contribution at Wildwood.
