The re-enrollment and priority sibling application period continues through Wednesday, February 1. After February 1, remaining spaces begin to be filled with newly-accepted students. Be sure to take advantage of this time during which our current students’ spaces are reserved for their return.
If you have any difficulty with the re-enrollment process, please email either:
for the first step (Smart Tuition account activation), or
We hope that everyone had a restful Christmas break and we look forward to seeing all of you in the New Year.
The board has been working diligently to meet the goals of our strategic plan. We are very thankful that we were able to raise the money needed to attain the $1,000,000 gift!
Our next endeavor is the Head of School selection. At last month’s meeting, the board appointed me to lead a Head of School search committee comprised of board members, faculty and parents. Based on NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) guidelines, the search committee will be sending out a survey to a representative sample of parents, faculty and staff. The survey assesses the community’s opinions as to what the priorities for the Head of School should be in the immediate future and over the next five years. The answers to these questions will be used to compile a position description for the candidates. If you receive one of these surveys, please complete it and return it as soon as possible.
We recognize the importance of establishing a permanent Head of School as quickly, but prudently as possible. We greatly appreciate your partnership and patience in this. Thank you for everything you do.
Ashley Roach, Chair
Head of School Search Committee
Have you ever wondered what the International Student Program at Westminster is all about?
Have you wondered what is required to host an International student in your home?
Westminster currently has 21 International Students enrolled in grades 9 through 12. As a result of our partnership with New Oasis International Education we can offer local support and resources to our International students and host families.
If you’re curious if hosting would be a good fit for your family, plan to attend this informative information session. Local Student Coordinators Jenny Wilson and Kelly Myers will answer questions about:

Requirements for hosting a student
Tuesday, January 24, 2017, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Lower School Media Center
This event, originally planned for Jan. 13, is moved to Friday, Jan. 20.
The Westminster Athletics department is pleased to honor Coach Mark Tebbs (boys varsity basketball) and Coach Greg Wilson (girls varsity basketball) for significant coaching milestones. Coach Tebbs achieved his 500th career coaching win earlier this season while Coach Wilson hit the 300-win mark. Both of these milestones were achieved with wins at Fox Creek High School on November 21, 2016.
Mark Tebbs came to Westminster with a handful of wins from Sheridan Hills Christian School, but accumulated the bulk of his wins at Westminster. Greg Wilson’s coaching wins were tallied at Middle Georgia College, Augusta State University and Westminster.
Coach Tebbs and Coach Wilson will be recognized between the varsity basketball games at approximately 7 p.m. on Friday, January 20.
Report cards for Lower School students will be sent home in the students’ book bags on Friday, Jan. 6. Middle and Upper School report cards are expected to be sent by email to the primary parent/guardian on Monday, Jan. 9.
Fall exam grades for the Middle and Upper Schools will be available to view through PlusPortals after the students have had an opportunity to review their exams in class with their teachers. The fall coursework grades shown through the portals do not include the weighted exam grades or any other adjustments. The report card will reflect the final fall grade, which takes into account both the fall coursework grade and the fall exam.
Please note that report cards and transcripts may be withheld if all financial or other required obligations are not current.
I’m delighted to inform you of Westminster Schools of Augusta’s success in meeting and exceeding the $1 million gift challenge put forth by the anonymous foundation earlier this year!
As you may know, this capital campaign was the largest in our school’s history. Westminster’s Board is grateful for this foundation, thankful for the hard work of our committees and staff, and honored by the sacrifices of so many of our partnering families and friends who have shared in this vision for the school.
We would be remiss if we did not take the opportunity to thank Renee Campbell for all the hard work she put in this fall. She has gone above and beyond to see this campaign through to the finish line. Ultimately, we give glory to God for the success in reaching this remarkable outcome. Please join me in praising him for this amazing work.
