To be eligible for public kindergarten in St Johns County, children must be five years old on or before September 1 and must reside in St Johns County. To apply for first grade, children must be six years old on or before September 1 and have documentation of successful completion of kindergarten.
Parents must submit in a completed application by March 31, 2012 for Early Bird Lottery Admissions for the 2012-2013 school year. Applications can be obtained by visiting www.SPSchoolofExcellence.com or contacting Martha Brennan at (904) 540-0767.

Applications will be available. Space is limited, so parents are encouraged to apply early to avoid being placed on a waiting list for admission.
