Acceptance into the Pre-K program is through application only and students are accepted on a first come, first served basis.  New applications for Pre-K fall enrollment will be posted on our website and made available in our Central Administration Office in January of each year.

Once a student has been accepted into the Pre-K program, the parents will be contacted and given information about the registration process.  Registration typically takes place in the summer and will include both the registration process outlined below and the child's developmental assessment.  Parents will schedule an appointment to bring the child in for a developmental assessment and to complete the registration process.
