Entrance Requirements

The admissions committee evaluates candidates in terms of both achievement and promise, emphasizing the extent to which students have taken advantage of their educational opportunities. The most successful applicants are those who have completed a strong college preparatory curriculum and have contributed in a significant way to the life of the school, church or community.

WLC welcomes applications anytime after the completion of a student's junior year. Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. However, students admitted after April 1 of their senior year will be considered for Merit Awards on a space-available and funds-available basis.

The college recommends the following high school preparation to those who wish to meet the college's requirements:

Subject Years of Study
English 4
math 3-4
foreign language 3
history and social science 3
laboratory science 3
