Welcome to WES!
On behalf of everyone at Washington Episcopal School, welcome to the WES community! We are excited to have you join us and look forward to many years together.
There are a number of opportunities to get acquainted with the school before September.
Every new family will be assigned a “mentor” family before the Founders Day Picnic. These current families will serve as resources for you during your first months at WES. Many families arrange to meet during the summer before school starts; most meet at the picnic. We make every effort to match families with children in the same grade, so new students will have a familiar face when they start the school year. If you have not heard from your mentor by June 1, then please contact the Office of Admissions. We want to be sure that you are able to have a great transition to WES!
- SUMMER CAMP
A great way to help your child transition to his or her new school is through our camp. Summer at WES is available for those entering Transition-Grade 8 and offers multiple week-long sessions with themes ranging from “Under the Sea” to “Junior Engineers.”
