Primary A (Kindergarten) Priority Application Information

Each year, Next Generation designates a time period in the fall to accept priority applications for the next school year's Primary A (kindergarten) class. Applying during this time period guarantees an applicant consideration for one of thirty positions available in Primary A. Any applicant who is not offered enrollment during the priority period will be placed in a wait pool. Next Generation continues accepting applications after the priority application deadline and these applicants are placed in the wait pool to be considered for enrollment if a position were to become available. Positions are filled regardless of whether the opening occurs after the start of the school year.
Age Requirements: All applicants must be 5 years old prior to September 15, 2023, to be eligible for enrollment in the Primary A 2023 - 2024 school year.
