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. Wilson Hall does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, national or ethnic origin in any of its policies, practices or procedures.
To be considered for admission, it is preferable that applicants score in at least in the 70th percentile on a nationally standardized test. Additionally, applicants must have earned at least a C in core courses (English, math, science & social studies). For students who have only taken a state test, advanced scores in reading and math are preferred but a minimum of proficient scores are required. In addition:
Mid-year transfers are accepted for the three-year-old preschool-5th grades. 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 not accepted unless the applicant will be taking the same classes in which he or she is currently enrolled.
Preschool & Kindergarten
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, but applications will be accepted until the class is filled to capacity. Students must be completely potty-trained before they begin school.
1st - 11th Grades
Academic performance is the primary factor in gaining admission to Wilson Hall.
Local transfers to the 12th grade are admitted only under special circumstances. Applicants must have an excellent academic record with the necessary coursework to meet Wilson Hall's requirements, and applicants must have earned at least the average SAT score of the Senior Class to be considered for admission.
The application process is a relatively simple one, and Wilson Hall accepts applications at any time. Before a student may be considered for admission, the application file must be complete with the following items:
For questions regarding the process, please contact Sean Hoskins, Director of Admissions, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803-469-3615, ext. 107.
For classes that are not full, the Director of Admissions decides which applicants will be admitted based on the applicant's file and academic record. However, for classes that have more applicants than there are vacancies, the Admissions Committee will decide which applicants will be admitted.
The primary factor the Admissions Committee will consider when granting admission is the academic record of the applicant. Once the applicant has met the academic and character standards required for acceptance to Wilson Hall, the following factors may also be considered by the Admission Committee prior to making their recommendation (considerations are listed in no particular order):
