We are thrilled that your family is considering BWL. We opened our doors in 1916 with the simple but focused mission to enable each child to achieve their greatest potential.

Our admissions process has been structured for you to learn about BWL, and for us to learn about your family. We hope that by visiting our school, exploring our website, and hearing from some of our community members in our We Are BWL video, you will feel the spirit of BWL and gain a strong sense of our rigorous and encouraging educational community. 

Our application for the 2024-2025 school year is now open. Please visit our Admissions Process page to learn about the steps for applying. Our Application deadline for the first round of decisions is Friday, December 15, 2023.
