Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in MetroWest Jewish Day School. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your family through this application process and welcoming you to our warm, growing and diverse community.

There are several parts to the admissions process. After an initial interview, you will receive a packet with an application and information about MWJDS.

A decision will be made about enrollment after we receive all the required forms and your child completes the screening process.

Application

Fill out our Online Form or download the MWJDS Admissions Application here.

The MWJDS Application for Admissions must be completed, signed and submitted with a non-refundable $54.00 application fee. Please note that the $54 non-refundable application fee covers our admissions process and screening costs and is not applied to tuition. You may send in a check or pay via PayPal:

 

Please include a copy of your child’s birth certificate and a recent photo of your child with your application. Also, please sign the Authorization for Release of School Information section which permits us to receive student records and information from their current school.

Screening

After we receive the application and fee, your child will meet with members of our faculty who will help us assess your child’s skill level. Screenings will take approximately 30 minutes and are usually conducted at MWJDS. In some cases, a member of our faculty may observe your child at his or her current school.

As a community school, MWJDS is committed to serving students with a broad range of learning styles. Information gathered during the screening, and the records received from each student’s current school, will help us assure that your child will have a positive experience at MWJDS.
