If you are registering a student for Kindergarten in the current, 2020-21 school year, STOP! Please follow the Quick link for "Registration" at the bottom of the home page and select Registration Grades K-12 for the 2020-21 School year.

*To be eligible for Kindergarten in the 2021-2022 school year, a child must be five years of age on or before August 31, 2021*


**IMPORTANT**

*REGISTRATION NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED BY May 31ST, 2021*



 

Students not completely registered by this date will not be guaranteed a spot in their neighborhood school for the 2021-2022 Kindergarten year.


If you currently have a child enrolled in a Quakertown school, but have NOT registered their sibling for Kindergarten by May 31st, 2021, the Kindergarten student will not be guaranteed a spot in their neighborhood school for the 2021-2022 Kindergarten year. Please register early to ensure that your child attends Kindergarten in the same school as their siblings and neighborhood friends.


All registered Kindergarten students will be assigned to an AM or PM half-day class in June 2021.  Any student that is being considered for the Full Day Kindergarten Program will be asked to attend an assessment in late July/early August 2020 to determine Kindergarten placement. Invitations to the Full Day Kindergarten Program will be made by mid-August.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be holding an in person kindergarten registration event this year.

All registrations will be processed through the PowerSchool Enrollment form.  An appointment for kindergarten registration is not required.  However, if you have specific questions regarding the registration process you can schedule an appointment to speak with the Registrar by following the directions below.

screener. Note, you do not need to "officially" assess your child with these tools.
