The Academy offers a tuition based program with options for full day (7.5 hour) or half day (3 hour) programming. Children must be 4 years old by October 1st to be eligible to enroll in our PreK program. To enroll your child in our program, you must apply by entering a lottery. The lottery opens annually for applications in September. You may access the lottery application on our main web page by clicking Enrollment Information on the left side of the page, then scroll down to the lottery link. If your child is selected randomly by the lottery, he/she will then be eligible to enroll and you will be contacted by the Pre-K staff in February. The lottery closes annually on January 15th. If you do not have your child entered into the lottery by January 15th, your option is to contact the director and ask to be put on a waiting list which will be utilized once the lottery list has been exhausted.
