Preschool & Kindergarten



Our goal is to make your application process to AFS as simple and enjoyable as possible. At your earliest convenience, please apply online to begin.

Steps in the application process include:


Parent Statement

Teacher Recommendation

Parent & Student Meeting

School Readiness Assessment for children who will be 4 by September 1 or entering Kindergarten

While there is no particular order in which required steps in the application process must be completed, the Admission Committee will only review a candidate’s profile when all components are completed. A detailed checklist will be available to you through our online application system.

To further guide you in this process, we encourage parents to call or email our Preschool admission representative Lindsay Newlon to answer any questions and to arrange your personal visit to our school.
