Registration opens on April 12th for the June 30th & July 1st screenings. The July 21st & 22nd screenings will open at a later date.
For admission to kindergarten, a child must be five years of age prior to September 1 of the current school year. A child who turns five between September 1 and December 31 of the current school year will be assessed to determine readiness in order to qualify for early entrance into kindergarten.
Kindergarten screenings will be held in June and July. Screenings for early entrance will not take place after these sessions.
Registrations for screening must be completed online; a non-refundable $90 assessment fee will be collected at that time. Once registration is completed, confirmation will be sent via email indicating the date, appointment time, and location for the child’s screening. Results will be given after the completion of the screening.
Early entrance screenings measure a child’s social and academic ability, predicting their success in kindergarten. The social screening takes place in a group setting, while the academic readiness assessment is individually administered in a computer lab with support and guidance from a certified teacher.
The social screening and the academic readiness assessment will be analyzed, and a decision will be made regarding the child’s readiness. This decision regarding initial placement is final with no appeal process, and children will not be rescreened.
If within the first 30 school days, there is a concern regarding whether an early placement is appropriate for your child, a campus team may be convened to reconsider this decision.
