Applying to Wardlaw + Hartridge during COVID-19


We hope you and your family are safe and healthy during these unprecedented and uncertain times.


As a result of the executive orders issued for New Jersey, we have canceled all of our on-campus visits and admission assessments until further notice. However, the admission process will continue virtually.

We have revised our admission procedures to ensure you and your children are able to complete your admission process with The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in a convenient and timely manner. While the revised process outlined below is out of the norm, our intent is to facilitate your completion of the application process within the health constraints under which we all are currently living. 

If you have not already done so, take our virtual tour here.

Please note that these revised admission procedures are temporary as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and are subject to return to our standard admission procedures at any time.  If you have any questions about these changes, we can be reached at or 908-754-1882, Ext. 155.
