How to Apply
How to Apply to Elementary School, grades TK-5
We welcome applications at every grade level, including Kindergarteners who will turn 5 by September 1, 2023 or Transitional Kindergarteners who will turn 5 by February 1, 2024. Our TK program is intended for students who are ready for an experience in a TK-8 school environment, and we currently integrate our TK students into our Kindergarten program with differentiated learning opportunties. We consider every child on an individual basis to determine whether TK, Kindergarten, or another year of preschool is most appropriate. We welcome your inquiries and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Below you will find a detailed description of the application process. Wornick uses FACTS' web-based application platform for the submission of online applications. The Admissions team will be available to answer your questions or provide assistance at any time during the process.
The application system for the 2023-24 school year will open mid-September. All application materials for the 2023-24 school year are due January 20, 2023.
