Sibling Admissions

We have an early decision option for current Northwest families and faculty members with children applying to 6th grade for the 2022-23 school year. For current families and faculty with children applying to 7th – 12th grades, students are considered during the standard admissions timeline. 

It’s important to note that under this policy, sibling and faculty child applicants are not guaranteed admission. All children who apply, regardless of the timing of their applications, are evaluated holistically, based upon the myriad materials submitted. The early decision timeline for 6th grade applicants gives families time to explore other educational options should that be necessary.
