We welcome interested families to learn more about our school by exploring our website or contacting our admissions team. If you are considering applying to Explorer West for the 2020-21 school year, please plan on coming to one of our open house events in the fall. Our open houses provide an opportunity to meet our staff, faculty, and students. Teachers will be on hand to discuss the different subject areas, curriculum, and programs available at our school. Open house dates will be published in July.
Our regular application deadline has passed for Fall 2019 admission. We have no space in our 6th or 8th-grade classes for the Fall of 2019. We are accepting 7th-grade applications for the Fall.
