Admissions Process


Northwest Catholic has a personalized, friendly, and organized admissions process. We guide prospective students and their families through the admissions journey so they can discover for themselves if NWC is the right fit. We know NWC is the school where you know you belong, but we also know each student needs to realize this truth for him or herself. Throughout the entire process, we strive to answer every question and allay every concern as we know the decision to attend an independent high school is monumental and lasting.
