Our Campus May Be Closed, But Our Admission Office Is Open!

We are living in an unusual time, and we are looking forward to the day when life returns to "normal!" If you are still looking for a school home for the fall of 2020, we encourage you to begin the process now. While we can't do campus tours, we are working to update this page with videos of the school and our community, and we will be hosting a few VIRTUAL roundtables and panels in the coming weeks. Please reach out to us and we can't wait to meet you!

Discover the Education for a Lifetime

We believe that Westminster offers a unique curriculum and close-knit community unlike any other found in the Memphis area. Our admission process seeks to identify families who share our passion for the classical Christian pedagogy and students who will thrive in our educational model and live joyfully and humbly in Christian community.  The best way to gain an understanding of what a classical Christian education truly means is to see it in action. We would love for you to schedule a tour, visit a class, or attend a school event to learn more.

Do not try to hide your children from the world forever, but do not pretend there is no danger. It’s time to rebuild a uniquely Christian culture within our Christian communities.  The key is in our children.  We may or may not influence the direction of the nation, or the world.  But we are called to be His people—to be faithful.  So come with us as we pioneer a path that has already been traveled—many times in history.  And each time, it has led to a people dedicated to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  And they, in turn, polluted the dark shadows of the culture, from the ‘city on the hill’ that is the kingdom of God on earth. ~Association of Classical and Christian Schools

Frequently Asked Questions

Each fall, we have approximately 30 spots for new junior and senior kindergarten students. Other grades may have select openings. We will know the available spots on February 1, after current parents have completed re-enrollment. 

We are so very grateful for the Lord’s blessing for Westminster Academy with an increasing enrollment and interest in our school. As a result, some of our classes are currently full for the 2020-2021 school year. However, we still want to encourage families who have interest in our school! Please submit an application so your student can be placed in our wait pool. Through the application process, we will be able to get to know you and your family better. Should spots become available, they will be filled from the pool of applicants with completed packets in the Wait Pool. We very much look forward to meeting you and partnering with you on this important journey!

For the 2020-2021 school year, we anticipate wait pools for the following grades: JK, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th, & 9th

Our admissions committee will consider your application only when all required documents, testing, recommendations, records, and writing samples (as applicable to grade) are received. The committee typically meets once per week and the first round of acceptances will be communicated on Feb. 15. After Feb. 15, we will communicate as soon as possible after the entire completed packet is received.  

We ask that applicants for junior kindergarten turn 4 by June 1 and applicants for kindergarten turn 5 by June 1. We rely much more heavily on the results of our developmental assessment than a chronological date, however, so please contact us if you have questions about your child. 

Yes! Approximately 40% of our students receive some form of tuition assistance. Please apply if your family has need.
