If Your Home School Doesn't Have Preschool

If your home school does not have an APS Preschool, allow the system to default to your home school.

Please select your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice and let us know your preferred school.

We will be placing students in classrooms starting April 8th. You will receive an email or phone call to inform you with a spot some time in April. You will have up to 5 business days to accept and bring in documents to the school.  

Once you have enrolled, you can log back into ParentVUE and see that you are waiting to be assigned.
