The application for Pre-K at Phoenix is different than the application used for grades K-5 at Phoenix and the other magnet programs in the parish. That is because our Pre-K is not part of the Phoenix Magnet program. The Pre-K classes are simply housed on this campus. Applications will be accepted each year throughout the month of February for the following school year.
Therefore, acceptance into the Pre-K program does not guarantee acceptance into our Kindergarten the following year. In the spring of your child's Pre-K year, you will need to submit an application for Kindergarten, and your child must pass the entrance exam.
You must come to the school to complete a Pre-K application (it is different than the one on-line). When you come, you will need to bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate, Social Security card, and shot record. Applications without these documents will not be accepted.
Having a sibling here at Phoenix DOES NOT guarantee that your Pre-K student will get accepted! There are state guidelines that we must follow when accepting students into our Pre-K classes because they are funded with state funds.
