Admission Policy and Tuition
Admission decisions affect the Whittier Friends School's mission to provide quality education for those children who can benefit from and contribute to a program committed to Friend's philosophy, principles and values. Students of any race, sex, religion or nationality are welcome*. Children must be at least 5 years old by December 1 to be admitted to transistional kindergarten at the start of the school year in September. Returning students and their siblings are given first priority for available spaces.
*Whittier Friends School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
In compliance with the California State Education Code, children are admitted only if their needs can be met by the program and if their admission will in no way impede the program's ability to meet the needs of the other enrolled students. Pre-admission interviews and/or consultation with the child's former teacher and/or principal are required. The faculty, with parental input, will make the final decisions about student placement.
