Pre-K Program Application Process

Pre-K applications for students ages 3 and 4 years old by August 1, will be accepted beginning January 10, 2022. Students currently enrolled in PCSSD Pre-K program who do not reside in the PCSSD attendance zone will need to re-apply for the 2022-2023 school year.

Please note: Your application is not approved until you receive a letter of acceptance. Students with incomplete applications will not be considered for placement on a class roster. Therefore, students will not be able to attend school until the application is complete. Slots are limited. Families must qualify based on Arkansas Better Chance Grant requirements.

PCSSD Pre-K places priority of registration to PCSSD-zoned residents. If you are not zoned for PCSSD, those applications will be placed on a waitlist for review once the school year begins.

Should you have any questions please contact our Pre-K department via email
