Schools Hold Open Houses Ahead of Kindergarten Registration Launch

Schools are holding a series of open houses ahead of the start of the kindergarten registration process in April. New families can tour prospective schools at the times listed below.

Kindergarten registration for the 2017-18 school year begins on Tuesday, April 18 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at all elementary schools. Registration forms can be completed online a couple of weeks ahead of the start of registration. Alternatively, print kindergarten registration packets can be picked up at elementary schools in early April. All registration has to be completed in person at the school or Central Office after April 18.

Visit the ACPS Enrollment webpage for more information about enrollment.

A redistricting implementation transfer application process will be available for the 2017-18 school year. These transfers are offered to families who have been rezoned and would like their child(ren) to begin attending the newly zoned school prior to full redistricting implementation. Transfers will be reviewed and approved based on available capacity at that grade level. For these transfers, transportation will be provided for students who meet the requirements (Policy EEA).
