Parents unsure of which school they should register their child can visit www.apsb.org/SchoolDistrictSearch and enter a home address to pull up their respective school district for the 2020-21 school year.

Early Childhood Ascension Public Schools is comprised of four different programs: public Head Start (251 seats available), public Pre-K classes (434 seats available), Tuition-Based Pre-K (35+ seats available), and private childcare centers that accept childcare assistance funding (CCAP). Public school Pre-K and Head Start programs are state and federally funded and income based; therefore, there are limited openings available at each site. Completing an application does NOT guarantee placement. Students are NOT accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. All applicants who have a completed application (including income documentation) will be processed in June. Accepted participants will be notified in July. Tuition-based seats are limited, and tuition amounts vary based on family income.
