Pre-K Program Application Process

Pre-K applications for students ages 3 and 4 years old by August 1, will be accepted beginning January 8, 2024.

Please note: Your application is not approved until you receive a letter of acceptance via email. Please ensure your email address is correct to prevent miscommunication. Acceptance of the Pre-K application is not a guarantee of acceptance to the PCSSD ABC Pre-K program. PreK applications will not be processed until all required documents have been submitted. 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
