KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION IS OPEN
Children who will be five years old by August 31, 2016 will be eligible for Kindergarten in the 2016-2017 school year. Kindergarten registration will begin on February 16, 2016 and end on March 22, 2016.
Parents should select "Student Registration" on the left side of the home page. Once the on-line paperwork is complete, parents will be prompted to select a date and time for the appointment, which will be held at their child’s elementary school. Parents who are unsure of their elementary school, or are unable to select an appointment, should call 610-705-6120.
As a part of the registration process for the 2016-2017 school year, you will be asked if you would like to have your child “screened” for Kindergarten readiness. The screening process will help us identify those students who are most in need of a “boost” before starting kindergarten. These students will be eligible (by invitation) to participate in a Summer Program. Please click here to learn more about the kindergarten screening process.
