Kindergarten registration in Asheville is not simple. There are dozens of choices and the application process for Fall 2017 has already started. There are six public city magnet schools. There are public county schools divided into six separate districts. There are public charter schools with separate lottery processes, co-op and community schools, and several private schools with different application, interview, and financial aid systems. There are schools with mixed age/grade classrooms. Some schools combine pre-K and kindergarten. Some kindergarten and first grade. Some combine all elementary ages! There are Classical schools, Montessori schools, and Waldorf schools. Some have final deadlines in January. Some have registration in May. Some have wait lists. It’s a kindergarten enrollment jungle out there. At Asheville Creative Arts Preschool, we want to help you navigate that jungle. Below is a pdf file of a comprehensive list of kindergarten visitation, application, orientation, and registration dates for Buncombe County and Asheville area schools. While not a complete listing, these pages should help you get started. There are over 50 schools included in the list.
