The WCPS application is available to print or complete online. The application is a Family form, including all children on the same application. Each family must complete an application every year. Priority is given to applications received before January 31 preceding the school year, but applications are accepted throughout the school year.
WCPS has a tenure based admission process for currently or formerly enrolled families. Applications are ordered by initial date of enrollment, with priority given to active Woodmont Christian Church members. New applicant families are ordered by random lottery draw, with priority given to active Woodmont Christian Church members. The WCPS Admissions Committee processes the lottery. Applications reviewed and offered admission will be mailed a contract specifying the days offered and annual tuition.
Any applications received after the January 31 cut-off date will be considered on a first come basis. Applicants requesting placement in a classroom that is full will be placed on the waiting list and will be notified if an opening becomes available. The office staff maintains a waiting list for filling vacancies that may occur. The waiting list does not carry over from one year to the next. Wait list families must reapply for the following year.
The Admissions Committee reviews the applications and makes placement recommendations. WCPS admits children of any religion, race, color, national and ethnic origin. It does not discriminate on the basis of religion, race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its admissions policies. Children with emotional, physical or cognitive special needs will be accepted if it is determined that they will benefit from the program and the staff is able to meet their needs in addition to the needs of the other children.
Classes are formed on the basis of the age of each child on the Tennessee kindergarten enrollment date, which by law enacted April, 2012 is September 30th for K class of 2013, August 31st for K class of 2014 and August 15th for all subsequent years. A child entering a WCPS class must be the appropriate age for that class age span by the specified cutoff date. The goal is to place each child in a group with which he/she can expect to attend kindergarten.
WCPS admissions honor the Nashville Consortium of Independent Schools calendar.
