Apply to FXW

All students who complete the application process prior to the deadline are considered for enrollment at FXW. However, due to the high volume of applicants, we cannot guarantee enrollment to all who apply.  The application process begins once we receive your child’s completed application form and the $65 application fee.  In addition to the application, parents are asked to complete a Parent Survey.  This survey allows parents to shed light on the uniqueness of their family and  their reasons for applying to The Frances Xavier Warde School.
