List of 6 items.

  • Step 1 – Inquiry

    Click "Get Started" anywhere on our website to complete an inquiry form. Upon receiving your inquiry form, the school office will send you instructions to help you sign in to our online portal, MyWFBA. You will also receive a checklist with more information about next steps. 
  • Step 2 – Application

    After submitting an inquiry, you will be assigned a checklist accessible through the MyWFBA portal. The first step is to complete an online application for each child to gather additional information about your child and your family.
  • Step 3 – Academic Records

    To provide a clear understanding of your child's individual needs, we request a copy of their most recent report card, transcript, and/or achievement testing results. This can be scanned and submitted online through our portal. We also accept written references from previously attended preschools and schools, as well as from church leadership.
  • Step 4 – Family Interview

    After submitting academic records and references, you will be assisted in setting up a family interview. Our personal interviews with school leadership are an essential part of the admissions process, during which all parties will have the opportunity to learn if WFBA is the best partner for your educational goals. The interview includes a tour of campus facilities.
  • Step 5 – Placement Exam

    After reviewing academic records and meeting with your child, the school administration will determine if it is necessary to complete additional grade placement exams. This will be coordinated with parents via our school portal.
  • Step 6 – Decision & Contract

    You will receive an enrollment decision from the school office through the MyWFBA portal as well as an enrollment agreement upon acceptance. Any remaining requirements such as health examination forms, immunization records, birth certificates, and verification of legal guardianship will be sent to you prior to the start of the new school year.
