Children must be 5 years old by September 1 to enroll in kindergarten.

Pre-Kindergarten Students

Students must be four years old on or before September 1 to be considered for enrollment. Unlike enrollment for K-12, seats are limited in the pre-kindergarten program.

If space is available once the automatically eligible students have registered, other students may be placed from the applicant pool on a priority basis.
