Attend an Informational Meeting
Upcoming Meeting Dates:

Step 2: Complete an Online Application
Once you've attended a WPA Information Meeting, complete an online application to begin the enrollment process. A $95.00 non-refundable application fee per student will be applied when you submit the online application.
Step 3: Submit Required Documentation
In addition to the online application, all documents required to complete a student application must be turned in to the Admissions Coordinator along with the online application. Once all documents have been received and placement testing has been administered, your student will meet with the academic dean to discuss the testing results. Because classes fill up quickly, a completed student file is of the utmost importance in transitioning your student through the enrollment process.
- Birth Certificate
- Shot Records
- Copy of Insurance Card
- Pastoral Reference
- Report Card/Transcript of Grades
- Teacher Recommendation
- Principal Recommendation
- Medical Diagnosis
- Legal Documents
Step 4: Placement Testing
Placement testing will be completed prior to enrollment and will help determine the student's readiness for the grade level and ability to meet the academic expectations of the program. This placement testing is for 3rd - 12th grades. Current standardized test scores (Stanford Achievement, Iowa Basic or Terra Nova - Less than one year old) may be submitted in lieu of WPA's placement testing. A testing time will be schedule by the Admissions Coordinator once an application has been submitted. WPA will use a Standardized Test in language arts and a WPA grade level math exam, in addition to requiring a pre-determined, grade-level appropriate written essay. WPA will also use an in-house assessment test to determine the student's readiness for K4-2nd grades.
- The testing fee is $55.00 for 3rd - 12th grades and $27.50 for K4-2nd grades.
Step 5: Academic Dean Meeting
A meeting with the Academic Dean will be scheduled to discuss the placement/assessment testing results, grade placement, class selection and graduation requirements. This meeting will take place once the student's file is complete with all required documentation. The Secondary Dean will discuss the students graduation plan and ensure the student meets all the requirements necessary to graduate with a WPA Diploma.
Step 6: Family Interview
Once steps 1-5 have been completed, a Family Interview will be scheduled with the parents and perspective student(s). This will be a 45 minute interview with two WPA board members. This is an opportunity for families to ask questions regarding the University-Model® and for the WPA Board to get to know you has a family and to confirm that WPA is the right fit.
Step 7: Acceptance Letter
Finally, after all the above steps have been completed, a letter of acceptance will be e-mailed to the family. Following notification of acceptance, the family has two weeks in which to respond by enrolling in classes. The applicant is considered enrolled when classes have been chosen with the school and the tuition and registration deposit submitted to the academy. If the family does not respond within the time allowed, your spot in the class will be opened to the next available applicant.
