, and you feel that he/she may be ready for kindergarten for the upcoming school year, you may have him/her tested for early entrance. Please review A Parent's Guide to Early Entrance to Kindergarten
for valuable information to help you determine if your child is ready for kindergarten. After reading the guide, if you feel your child is ready to start kindergarten, complete an Early Entrance to Kindergarten application
and submit it before August 1. Contact Sunny Groves at (614) 916-1173 with questions about Early Entrance Testing. Only children who pass this test and prove to be good candidates for entering school early according to the Acceleration Policy will be eligible to start kindergarten in the fall.
If your child turns five-years-old after December 31, he/she is not eligible to apply for Early Entrance Testing and must wait to enter kindergarten until the following fall.
If your child is six-years-old by June 30 and has not attended any school, you may apply for permission to have your child “skip” kindergarten and go directly to the first grade. He/she will need to be tested by our school district. Contact our Welcome Center at 614-491-8288 for assistance.
