Registration has begun for Pre-K and K students across the district including at the new Montessori School at LeMoyne and Syracuse Latin.  Please go to to register today!

The Montessori School at LeMoyne will be welcoming its first class of Pre-K students in the 2016-17 school year for children that will be 3 or 4 years old by December 1st, 2016.  At the Montessori School students will be in mixed-age classrooms and learn independently in uninterrupted blocks of work time through hands-on activities rather than direct instruction.  In this child-centered approach to education, the focus is on the development of the whole child—physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.  Students learn at their own pace, selecting tasks that are of interest to them within parameters set by their teachers.
Syracuse Latin is registering Kindergarten and 3rd grade students (limited space available at the 3rd grade level) for the 2016-17 school year.  At Syracuse Latin students and staff celebrate learning with an academically rigorous curriculum focused on leadership, citizenship and intellectual growth. Completion of the Syracuse Latin application does not guarantee enrollment into Syracuse Latin.  In addition, students applying at Syracuse Latin are required to participate in the Syracuse Latin testing process. 
Universal Pre-K program registration is also open and serves students ages 3 and 4 years old. 4 year olds (student will be 4 on or before December 1, 2016) who enroll in Pre-K will be assigned a school based on the address of their parent/guardian. Upon completion of an online application and submission of the required documents, your child will be enrolled in the Pre-K program for the 2016-2017 school year.  If you are interested in enrolling your child in one of District’s Partner Agency Programs, you will be provided an opportunity to select and submit an application for up to two (2) Agency sites.  Placement is based upon space availability and submission of a completed application, as well as Required Documents.

There are a limited number seats for three year old students (students who will be 3 on or before December 1, 2016) in some District schools as well as in the District’s Partner Agency Programs.  If you are interested in enrolling your child in one of these District or Agency classrooms, you will be provided with an opportunity to select and submit an application for up to two (2) district sites and two (2) agency classrooms.

Parents are reminded that Transportation is not provided for Pre-K students.

If your child will turn 5 years old on or before December 1, 2016 then they are eligible to register for Kindergarten.  Please note that parents/guardians of students who are currently enrolled in a Syracuse City School District or Agency Universal Pre-K Program are not required to complete an online application for kindergarten.  You will receive a Pre-K to K transition letter from the Department of Student Registration.  This letter will provide detailed information on your child's school assignment for the 2016-2017 school year.
