Register for Kindergarten

I want to register my kindergartner.

Open Enrollment for the 2024-25 school year ended on April 8, 2024. A random, public drawing was held on April 18, 2024, to determine enrollment and waitlist priority.

TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN
AACA partners with local elementary schools to provide transitional kindergarten. We do not provide services on-site.

AGE REQUIREMENTS
Students must be five years old by September 1, 2024, to enroll in kindergarten.

Admission Preference

Please note: The charter gives preference in admissions to students who are currently enrolled in, or who reside in, the elementary school attendance area of the public elementary school in which Almond Acres Charter Academy is located.

We absolutely love the approach to learning and citizenship put forth by the school and staff. Not only are students cared for as unique individuals with different learning styles, but each student is also encouraged to be good citizens within their community.

“AACA is a perfect fit for any family. I’ve never met a staff so caring, and supportive and want the true best education and experience for all children.”

I completely align with the mission and vision of Almond Acres Charter Academy. They grow great kids! Their teaching structure not only emphasizes the core curriculum but has an innovative aspect that is child-centered. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the family and am eager to help and watch it grow.

What is a charter school?

Charter schools are open to the public, are tuition-free, participate in state tests, employ credentialed teachers, and do not discriminate.

Charter schools are granted greater flexibility in their operations and do not have to adhere to all the regulations imposed upon school districts. 

Charter schools, like traditional public schools, are accountable for academic results, and must be able to demonstrate financial and organizational stability.

Will I need to obtain a district transfer?

No. As a school of choice, a release from your district or transfer is NOT required.

Do current students need to fill out a Request for Enrollment?

No, currently enrolled students are automatically re-enrolled for next year. However, families are asked to complete an Intent to Return Form in the spring.

Do siblings of current students who are not currently enrolled need to fill out a Request for Enrollment?

Yes. They must follow the same procedure as all new students requesting enrollment, but they will be granted priority if a drawing is to take place for their grade level.
