Students are admitted to Deerfield-Windsor on the basis of their educational record/transcript, teacher recommendations, academic testing, and observation or interview. The admission process begins October 1st when the online application for the upcoming school year opens.

Steps to apply for Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade:

  1. Complete the online application. You must register as a user to begin the process.
  2. Submit previous educational record/transcripts, if applicable.
  3. Submit appropriate teacher recommendation forms.
  4. Schedule and complete the admission assessment and campus evaluation visit.

The normal testing time for admissions is in the winter of each year. However, dates can be arranged when necessary.


Expansion of class size typically occurs in grades Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 6th grade and 9th grade. There are limited openings each year in other grades.

Generally 11th grade and 12th grade are not entry points for new students. However, in the event of a family move to the area, acceptance in these grades may be considered.
