Open Enrollment Period > March - June, each school year
Determining full curriculum enrollment at Woodson Branch Nature School is a thoughtful, intimate, and wonderful process. It all starts with a Guided Tour. It is essential for us to meet your family in person, show you around our campus, and give you the chance to picture yourselves here. Plus, you will have our undivided attention to answer any of your questions. Afterward, if you love it, we will give you an application. (*You will note that there are no WBNS applications located online anywhere). Next, you fill out and return your child's application and send it in with your deposit and application fee. Once received, we will set up your enrollment assessment meeting date to be held at WBNS between April 1st and June 30th which will determine enrollment for the next school year. You will receive a letter of acceptance or indication of your number on the waiting list, or if it's just not determined to be a good fit, a denial. From there if accepted, we will set up the Home Visit with your child's homeroom teacher. This will be the beginning of the teacher-student bond, a unique part of our program.
#1 Come to take a Guided Tour of the school. Tours are available by appointment only, between September and June.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule!
#2 After completing your tour, fill out and submit an application with a deposit of $525, plus a non-refundable $50 registration fee. (per student). *The deposit serves as the student’s last month’s tuition upon departure from WBNS. It is also the only way to remain on the official waiting list. It is fully refundable should you ask to be taken off the waiting list at any time.
#3 After sending in your application and deposit, if there is a space in your child's perspective grade, we will set up an enrollment assessment meeting at WBNS.
#4 Should we determine that your family is a good fit for WBNS, we will inform you via email and schedule a Home Visit with your child's perspective teacher.
