Wichita Collegiate seeks to enroll academically qualified students of good character who are motivated to learn. Because of our challenging curriculum, we conduct admission evaluations to ensure that admitted students will be able to succeed at Collegiate and maximize the learning opportunities.

Prospective students should demonstrate average or above aptitude, and perform on standardized achievement tests at a minimum at the grade level for which they are applying. WCS accepts applications year round. Enrollment is subject to the availability of space in the desired grade level. Because several grade levels typically fill very quickly, we encourage families to apply as early as possible.

Admission to Wichita Collegiate is need-blind, meaning that admission decisions are made solely based on academic ability and behavior, without regard to a family's need for tuition assistance. WCS 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 based on race, color, national, and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, tuition assistance program, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
