Kindergarten Application

Applications for Kindergarten follow a more specific schedule than applications to other grades. The steps for applying to Kindergarten are as follows:
  1. Submit a completed online Kindergarten parent application.
  2. Request that the child's preschool teacher complete and submit the observation form (which is included in the online application) for Kindergarten applicants.
  3. Schedule a readiness screening. After the application is received, families will be contacted by the Admission Office to set up an appointment for their child, which will last approximately one hour.
