Applications are being accepted at this time for the 2023-2024 school year. To submit the online application, please click on the Apply Now button at the top of the page. New students for the four-year-old preschool through 12th grade will be offered admission starting March 17th and applications will be accepted until the classes fill to capacity. The three-year-old preschool class is filled to capacity for the 23-24 school year, but applications may still be submitted for the waiting list.
Because there are several options when choosing a school in the Sumter area, we hope that you will give Wilson Hall full consideration. Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to visit our campus, and applications are accepted at any time.
To be considered for admission, it is preferable that applicants score at least in the 70th percentile on a standardized test. For students who have only taken a state test, advanced scores in reading and math are preferred, but a minimum of proficient scores is required. Applicants must have earned at least a C in core courses (English, math, science & social studies). In addition:
Mid-year transfers are accepted for the four-year-old preschool-5th grade. Mid-year transfers for grades 6th-8th will be considered in most cases, depending on the coursework the applicant has completed. Because the school does not offer partial credit for high school classes, mid-year transfers for grades 9th-12th are accepted under special circumstances pending the ability to schedule classes for the student.
Preschool, Kindergarten & 1st Grade
Student readiness is the primary factor in gaining admission. For the three-year-old preschool, admissions priority is given to children of current Wilson Hall parents and faculty. Applications for the three-year-old preschool should be submitted by January 31st. Students must be completely potty-trained before they begin school.

However, for classes that have more applicants than there are vacancies, the Admissions Committee will decide which applicants will be admitted.
Applicants for the three-year-old preschool will be granted admission based on the following order of priority: child of a Wilson Hall faculty member, applicant has an older sibling currently attending Wilson Hall, child of a Wilson Hall graduate, and date of application.
