    Application, Policies, and Calendar

    Late Summer Enrollment for The Willow School

    The Willow School is accepting applications for grades 5, 8 and 9 only.  

    The deadline to submit an application is noon, Tuesday, August 16. All required supporting documents are due by NOON, Wednesday, August 17. There can be no exceptions made to the deadlines.

    Please go here if this is your first time to complete Willow’s supplemental form. 

    If you completed the supplemental in a previous round – not just the OneAPP click here to reactivate your child’s application.  

    The Willow School is an Orleans Parish Public School; a child must be a legal resident of Orleans Parish to attend.

    Willow’s application process now starts with New Orleans Public Schools’ NCAP (formerly known as OneAPP).  You must first complete OneAPP and then move to Willow’s Supplemental Admissions Form – the link will be provided through OneAPP when that application is complete.

    Both the OneAPP and the Willow Supplemental Admissions Form must be completed online with all supporting documentation submitted by that deadline for the child to be scheduled for testing. Families with limited access to a computer and/or the internet can seek assistance from Willow. Computer access support is provided during the application period by appointment.

    The application process for the 2022-23 school year begins November 1, 2021.  The deadline to submit an application is January 21, 2022.  

    All applicants must schedule and complete their testing at The Willow School. Parents are assigned a testing date when the application is confirmed as complete.

    Please click here for our full policies.

    The following items must be provided for an application to be considered complete and for your child to be assigned a testing date: 

    • OneAPP online application
    • The Willow School Supplemental Admissions Form
    • Copy of Student’s Birth Certificate
    • Students applying for grades 5 to 12 should submit standardized testing from the 2020-21 school year
    • Students applying for grades 3 to 12 – Copy of FINAL 2020-21 report card 
    • Students applying for 2nd grade – Copy of 1st Quarter or 1st trimester 2021-22 report card. Please bring/submit to school as soon as received, but only after the application has been submitted.  We highly suggest submitting  your child’s application as early as possible; there is no need to wait for the first quarter or first trimester report card to submit the OneAPP and the Willow Supplemental Admissions Form.

    All applicants must complete an application packet, submit all other required documentation, complete the assessment and attend the scheduled virtual curriculum meeting (K-1 only). See the Admissions Policies and Procedures document below for additional information.

    As per our charter, for Kindergarten applicants only, qualified siblings of Willow students who attended Willow’s Elementary School and who will be enrolled in Willow School (K-12) in the 2022-23 school year, will be admitted before other applicants. A certain number of openings will be reserved for qualified children of Tulane University-affiliated parents.

    Admission will depend upon the availability of spots at each grade level.  Typically, there are more qualified applicants than spots available. Therefore a lottery is used to place applicants and a lottery is held for every grade level. Sibling policy applies only to kindergarten applicants.
