Initially, students enroll in the Foundation Year.  One may also plan to take the Foundation Year only.

For your convenience, you may download an application form from this website, below. You are also invited to contact us for a conversation.

Foundation Year Enrollment

To enroll in the Foundation Year, students must submit a completed application form, including a short personal biography and a $25 non-refundable application fee. Upon receipt of these, we will schedule a personal interview.

Personal interviews may take up to one hour and may be conducted over the phone or in person. It is our goal to assure that the applicant is entering the program with a clear picture of the demands, the challenges, and the learning opportunities offered. We want to clear away, when possible, any preconceived ideas by offering fresh perspectives.

Every applicant will hear two conditions:

  • Not to accept anything on authority, but to put everything to scrutiny, for we wish students to become independent thinkers.

  • Keep an open mind, for without it, one will never learn the truth beyond things that are already familiar.

Prospective students are welcome to visit classes before enrolling.  Please contact us via email or call to make arrangements.

Education Year Enrollment

Interviews for entrance into the second year are held each spring. Expectations for the year's time and work and financial commitments are thoroughly discussed. Students are advised not to work outside of the program for more than 15 hours per week at most. With 125 hours of active volunteering in the children's classes and 7 weeks of practicum, it is a full-time year.

​WTEE may accept transfers from other Foundation Year Institutes with comparable curriculum. The process requires an in-person interview.
