How to Apply
Lower School: Grades 1-5
1. Application and fee
After creating an account in the parent portal, complete the online application and submit the application fee. Once the online application and the application fee are submitted, please use the online checklist in your portal as a guide to completing the next steps.
2. Complete and submit the Parent Questionnaire
3. Upload a photo of the applicant
4. Schedule an assessment
Applicants for grades 1-5 will have two assessments. One will be conducted virtually (approx. one hour) and one will be in person at Charles Wright Academy (approx. one hour). Once you have completed the parent application and paid your application fee, call (253) 620-8373, or email us to make your appointment for an assessment. This is also a great time to schedule a personal tour if you haven’t already been to campus (or it’s been a while).
5. School Records
Within your parent portal checklist, please locate “School Records Request”. You will have the opportunity to enter the email address of the school administrator who is responsible for grades, school records, or progress reports at your child’s current school. This will contact the school to send us your child‘s school records directly. The checklist item named “School Records” will be marked complete once the records have been received by Charles Wright.
6. Teacher reference
Please provide your child’s current teacher’s name and email address on the Teacher Reference Form in the parent portal. Charles Wright will use this information to send an online confidential reference form to your child’s current teacher. Teacher Evaluations should be received by January 29, 2021.
7. Tour (optional)
We highly encourage your family to tour CWA and look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful 107-acre campus. We welcome families for an individual tour and will adhere to health and safety protocols. Morning visits work best although we can accommodate other times when necessary. Please call (253) 620-8373 or email us to schedule your family’s tour.
