Kinder Academy

  • Kinder Academy is also known as "Transitional Kindergarten" or KA. It is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program. Santa Rosa City Schools offers Kinder Academy at all of our elementary schools.

    Any child who will turn age 5 between September 2 and December 2, 2021 is eligible to enroll in Kindergarten Academy for the 2021-22 school year.

    • If space is available, children who turn 5 between December 3, 2021 and January 2, 2022 may be enrolled in Kinder Academy if determined to be developmentally ready.
    • Once those students are enrolled, if space is still available, children who turn 5 between January 3 and January 31, 2022 may be enrolled if determined to be developmentally ready.
    • If your child was born before September 2, they will be registered for Kindergarten but after being assessed, the teacher may recommend enrolling in the Kinder Academy if they feel the extra year would benefit the child. The choice is up to the parents.
