We are thrilled to have the Class of 2037 join us for an exciting journey! Kindergarten is a time of personal adjustment and stepping out beyond the family to the wider world. 

Beginning Wednesday May 1, parents may register their children for kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year. Completing registration early will help your child's teacher be ready to welcome your child when the school year begins on August 1, 2024. In order to register your student, Georgia law requires that kindergarten students be five-years-old on or by September 1, 2024.

Students who register for kindergarten by July 9 are also eligible for Kindergarten Camp. Kindergarten Camp gives rising students an opportunity to learn more about their new schools and see what a typical day at school is like. In order to participate, students MUST fully complete registration and your application must be approved by July 9, 2024.
