Guidelines for JK/K Applications from the Admissions Director
Our goal is to place your child in a class where they will love to learn, grow in confidence, and experience success. Every child is fearfully and wonderfully made in God's image. They come in all shapes and sizes and develop differently according to His perfect design. A child's birthday provides a general guideline for placement. We recommend that a child be four years old by March 1, 2024, to apply for Junior Kindergarten (JK) and five years old by August 15, 2024, to apply to kindergarten. Since each child is unique and develops on their own timeline, developmental maturity, including social, emotional, physical, and academic readiness, is also considered when recommending the best class for your child.
