Enrollment

Application/ enrollment process details Prekindergarten is our major entry year. CHDS enrolls 24 new prekindergarten students each year. (To be eligible for prekindergarten, a child must turn 4 by October 1 of his or her starting year.) Openings in kindergarten vary from year to year, but generally range from 1 to 4 spaces. There are typically 10 spaces available in 1st through 7th grade, but this number fluctuates based on attrition. We encourage you to call the Admissions Office to discuss availability in these grades.
