Postgraduate Program

Students in the 12th grade who will graduate from their high schools but feel an extra year of academic, athletic, artistic, and personal growth and preparation before heading to college would be beneficial may apply for a postgraduate year at Westminster. Typically there are eight to 10 postgraduate openings each academic year.

The application process is the same as students applying for other grades except that candidates should submit the results of the SAT or ACT instead of the SSAT to fulfill the standardized testing requirement. Students who are accepted for a postgraduate (PG) year join Westminster’s Sixth Form and become members of the graduating class. They must take the Sixth Form English class, but there are no other requirements or coursework specifically designed for postgraduate students. Postgraduate students are expected to contribute to the school community with their leadership, involvement, and citizenship.

If they meet our graduation requirements they will receive a Westminster Diploma at Commencement, otherwise they will receive a Certificate of Completion.
